Zulfi Bukhari sends defamation notice of Rs1b to Rawalpindi commissioner

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader and former Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) Zulfi Bukhari took Commissioner Rawalpindi Gulzar Hussain Shah, the man who had prepared a report on the Rawalpindi Ring Road scam, to a court on Friday when he sent a defamation notice of Rs1 billion to him, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

He shared this information with his followers in a tweet.

“As promised, I WILL NOT stand& watch lies propagate. I’ve officially taken Commissioner Rwp Gulzar Shah to court for #RingRoadReport where he’ll have to prove: "Why he wrote in the report I ‘augmented’ influence w/o any proof." Let nation & courts hear reasons behind the allegation!” he wrote.

In the notice, former SAPM says he has told the commissioner that a statement attributed to him in his report has tarnished his image.

The notice asks Gulzar Hussain Shah to submit his reply within 14 days; retract the statement attributed to Zulfi in the report; openly seek apology from him, and also issue a rebuttal of the statement attributed to the plaintiff.
