PM directs action against FIA officials for negligence in harassment case

Staff Reporter

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday ordered strict action against the officials of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) over failure to decide on repeated complaints of harassment by a woman.

The prime minister directed the Director General FIA to immediately suspend the involved FIA officials to ensure a transparent inquiry, the Prime Minister’s Office said.

He stressed provision of relief to the woman at the earliest, saying that no complaint should be ignored.

The woman had lodged a complaint with Pakistan Citizen Portal against FIA officials, who took no action over her five-time request of harassment during December 16, 2019 to June 13, 2021.

On facing harassment, the woman had quit her job at a university and approached the FIA. On non-cooperation by the FIA officials, she allegedly made an attempt of suicide.
