A case has been registered against Prime Minister Imran Khan’s nephew, Hasan Niazi, and four other persons at the Islampura police station under various charges, including attempted murder.
The case was registered by the widow of Nawaz Akbar Bugti, a former chief minister of Balochistan, who said that Niazi allegedly tried to strangulate her besides threatening her in a court in Lahore. Shahzadi Nargis said the accused allegedly attacked her in the court of additional district and sessions judge Syed Ali Abbas on Thursday, a report in Dawn said.
Nargis said that she had appeared in the court to seek bail in a ‘fake case’ lodged against her with the crime circle of FIA, Lahore.
Niazi termed the allegation baseless, saying the CCTV footage of the incident could be checked.
Nargis said she was feeling threatened because Niazi had a history of violence. She said Niazi was the prime accused in the case of the attack on the Punjab Institute of Cardiology.
