LAHORE: Imran Khan's sister Dr Uzma Khan has formally apologised to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz two days after she alleged that personnel in Maryam's protocol harassed her family.

In a letter to Maryam, Dr Uzma said the accusation was the result of misinformation because she was told at the time the protocol vehicle belonged to prime minister's daughter. She said the man who told her it was Maryam's protocol was Asim Gujjar, who was not known to her at the time of the incident.

"The fact that he had the audacity to take the name of PM's daughter, I could not imagine that he would be lying. Therefore please accept my apologies as I took the word of Gujjar as truth in my extreme state of trauma," read the letter signed by Dr Uzma.

Dr Uzma said on Friday that her family was harassed by Maryam's protocol when they were on their way to Friday prayers in the Gulberg-III area in Lahore.

Dr Uzma mentioned this incident in her letter to Maryam, "On 1st of July, on our way to Friday prayers, my children and I faced a traumatising experience. We were harassed and abused and nearly crashed head on by one of the protocol vehicles. When I followed the vehicles into the house, my daughter was left alone outside and the guards actually told her he would shoot if she didn't move."

Imran Khan, who was in Karachi at that time, lashed out at Maryam after hearing about the incident and called into question Maryam's management of government affairs.

Maryam quickly denied Dr Uzma's remarks and said that she was in Islamabad when the incident took place. Reacting angrily, she said "liars should have some shame at least in Ramazan".

Asim Gujjar, a close aide of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, later told the media that the protocol belonged to Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Sardar Yaqoob who arrived at his house to condole the death of his mother.
