Tayyaba Gul, the woman who had accused former National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal of ‘sexual harassment’, has said that she can prove all her allegations against the bureau’s ex-chairman at any forum, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

Quoting its sources, the TV channel reported that the woman made these remarks while talking to members of the commission, constituted by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to probe these claims, at its maiden official meeting.  

During her detailed conversation with members of the commission, she, while narrating the ordeal she allegedly went through, even broke down into tears and said that she could not forget those moments which she spent at the Prime Minister’s House.

The commission decided to compile a report on her allegations on a priority basis.     

In an interview with 24News in the first week of July 2022, the complainant had said that she with her husband were detained at the Prime Minister's House for 45 days where she was not even allowed to contact anyone and her mobile phone and laptop were also seized.

Tayyaba said she was called to the PM House on the pretext that there forensic audit of her video with the former NAB chairman would be conducted. “But then I and my husband were detained there, and when we asked the reason for that, we were told that our lives were in danger,” she elaborated. 

She claimed that then her video was used by the then government to blackmail Justice (r) Javed Iqbal
