The PHC has issued an order preventing the FIA from taking any action against Shandana Gulzar, a member of the PTI.

This decision is a reaction to a case filed against Gulzar for allegedly engaging in a campaign against governmental institutions.

During the court hearings, the extra attorney general objected to the jurisdiction of the petition, contesting the ability of the FIA Lahore to investigate a person from a different province. “The notice was delivered to her from Lahore,” he contended.

Justice Waqar Ahmed expressed the same worry, questioning whether the jurisdiction of the FIA was confined to Lahore and not expanded to other areas. “How does the FIA in Lahore carry out an investigation against a resident of this province?” he inquired.

The judge inquired whether the FIA just maintained an office in Lahore without any presence in any other area.

Justice Syed Arshad Ali inquired about the specific offenses committed by the suspect. The AAG justified the possibility of taking action by referring to purported remarks made against national institutions.
Nevertheless, Justice Ali explicitly asked for comprehensive information concerning the nature of these infractions.

The individuals involved were given clear instructions to make thorough explanations, and the court postponed the hearing until March 25.

Shandana Gulzar has been summoned by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Cyber Crime Circle in Lahore for questioning on March 14. This is in response to allegations of defaming state institutions and government officials on social media platforms.

Gulzar has been summoned in relation to accusations of making defamatory comments about state and government officials, as well as instigating people to rebel through her social media posts.

More precisely, Gulzar was accused of accusing Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz Sharif in a case involving the leak of an audio recording. The purported audio recording contained mentions of a deceased member of the PTI party, namely Zille Shah.

Gulzar has been accused by PML-N activist Shoaib Mirza, who submitted an application claiming her participation in derogatory actions against government leaders and institutions.
