ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan directed on Sunday State Minister for Climate Change Zartaj Gul to withdraw her letter requesting appointment of her sister Shabnam Gul in the National Counter Terrorism Authority (Nacta).

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Affairs Naeemul Haq said in a tweet, “The PM has directed that Zartaj Gul should withdraw her letter written to NACTA regarding the appointment of her sister.”

It is noteworthy that Zartaj Gul’s Principal Staff Officer Sami Ul Haq had written the letter to Secretary Interior on February 27, 2019.

“I am directed to refer to your telephonic conversation with Ms Zartaj Gul, Minister of State for Climate, regarding the appointment of Ms Shabnam Gul in Nacta. The CV of Ms Shabnam Gul is attached herewith for further necessary action please,” read the letter.

Subsequently, the interior ministry appointed Ms Shabnam Gul as Director (BS-19) in NACTA on May 22, 2019.
