20 member committee formed to probe Ayesha Gulalai allegations against Imran Khan

Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq has asked Sheikh Aftab Ahmed, Chief Whip, PML-N and Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly to nominate 13 and 7 members in proportion to strength of Parliamentary Parties belonging to the Treasury and the Opposition, respectively for this Special Committee on Ethics.

The move comes hours after a motion was adopted by the National Assembly authorizing the Speaker National Assembly to appoint a Special Committee under rule 244 (B) of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the National Assembly, 2007 to inquire into the matter relating to Ms. Ayesha Gulalai, MNA reported in the media recently and raised in National Assembly today.

The female PTI MNA has accused Imran Khan of sending 13 indecent text messages, a charge he denied and called it a conspiracy by the ruling PML-N.

In a series of tweets, PTI spokesman Shafqat Mahmood rejected what he called a committee of his adversaries.
