5 estranged PTI lawmakers send defamation notices to Imran Khan

Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan was sent defamation notices by five estranged PTI lawmakers on Tuesday for levelling allegation that they sold their votes during the Senate elections held in March.

Among the 20 names given out by the PTI chief, Qurban Ali Khan, Yaseen Khalil, Abdul Haq Khan, Zahid Durrani and Ubaidullah Mayar sent defamation notices to him. They are now demanding an apology within two weeks. Also, they asked him to pay Rs 1 billion or face legal proceedings.

Imran held a press conference after his party lost the Senate seats to the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
