The notice demanded Gharida Farooqi to immediately remove the malicious tweets and tender apology within seven days or pay Rs 1 billion as damages; otherwise, the notice said, all legal remedies available under the law would be availed by PTI.
The CMD head said that how someone could accuse Imran khan of corruption who has dedicated his life to the fight against corruption.
