Imran Khan, the former prime minister, is accused of using her videos to have his NAB cases closed and to blackmail the opposition, according to the woman accusing the former NAB chief of sexual harassment. This information was revealed by the woman, Tayyaba Gul, on Thursday during the Geo News programme “Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada ke Saath.”
Gul claimed that the NAB turned against her after she refused to live in a flat with the former chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal. She claimed that after filing a complaint on the prime minister’s portal, then-principal secretary Azam Khan summoned her to the prime minister’s residence. She promised justice, claiming that after two days they had taken her cell phone and aired the videos without getting her permission. When she objected, they ran her denial and then imprisoned her and her husband for 1.5 months in the Prime Minister’s House under the guise of bringing justice.
She claimed that following the release of the videos, the NAB did not detain the PTI leaders and ended their investigations. She asserted that she was in contact with Javed Iqbal’s victims as well. She also revealed that Noor Alam Khan, the chairman of the PAC, had been pressured by the NAB not to invite her to the meeting on Thursday. She claimed that the man who had tortured her was still in charge of the commission on missing persons and that if he had been in any other nation, he would have been imprisoned.
In the meantime, Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal, the former chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), called the accusation of sexual harassment made against him unfounded and baseless. His claim that Tayyaba Gul is a fraud is supported by her medical report, which was provided to the NAB Court of Special Judge Syed Najamul Hassan by the female medical officer of the Central Jail, Lahore.
According to the report, Tayyaba Gul, a prisoner without Muhammad Farooq, was brought to the Central Jail in Lahore on January 16, 2019. Every prisoner who enters the jail is required to undergo a medical examination in accordance with the Prisoners Rule of 1978. The prisoner is examined by a medical professional for any surgical, gynaecological, or psychological history. Tayyaba Gul’s medical examination was therefore also carried out, but she declined to report any sexual harassment to the female medical officer, deputy superintendent (judicial), or lady deputy superintendent of jail and instead stated in writing that she did not wish to have the examination. She claimed in her written statement that her health was fine and that she didn’t want to get checked out.

“Javed Iqbal would tell me that he will destroy my life within a minute,” said Gul.
“I met Iqbal during a meeting regarding missing persons,” she said, adding that when she asked him not to call her repeatedly, “he got angry”.
“My number was written on the request filed for the missing person, and he [Iqbal] kept calling me time and again,” she said. “I recorded Iqbal because he was a very powerful official and I wanted to expose him,” she added.
“My husband and I were arrested under the direction of the former chairman NAB. I was arrested by male officers and cannot even share the barbarity that I endured during the car ride.”
Tayyaba Gul also revealed that on the orders of DG NAB Lahore Saleem Shehzad, she was stripped naked during a search operation and her nude videos were shown to her husband.
