ISLAMABAD: Hanif Abbasi, a senior leader of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, on Tuesday sent a defamation notice worth Rs1 billion to Imran Khan, Samaa reports.
Abbasi said that Khan has labeled him as ‘ephedrine smuggler’ without any evidence.
In his notice, Abbasi has demanded an apology from Khan within 15 days otherwise he should pay Rs1 billion in damages to his reputation.
Abbasi said that he would initiate legal proceedings against Khan if he didn’t pay damages.
It may be pointed out that Abbasi had been accused of misappropriating 500kg ephedrine quota back in 2010. – Samaa
