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.
