Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Saturday filed a defamation case against Dubai-based businessman Umar Zahoor, and Geo News and its anchorperson Shahzeb Khanzada over a programme that alleged his involvement in the Toshakhana scandal.
The Toshakhana scam hit the headlines last month again when Zahoor claimed he was contacted by the former First Lady’s confidante Farah over the sale of a Rs2 billion Graff masterpiece.
Today (Saturday), the former premier took to Twitter to announce that his lawyers in the UAE had filed a case of libel and slander against the aforesaid.
Earlier, he also announced that his team had also filed a demand notice to the TV news channel and its owner.
Last month, the businessman claimed he paid Khan $2 million to buy the luxury watch he had received as a state gift.
