The former journalist and now a budding author had remained at the centre of controversy after the manuscript of Reham’s book was conveniently leaked online, which irked several Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders who took to Twitter to accuse her of being part of an “agenda” ahead of the upcoming general elections.

In an interview to a private television channel, Reham refuted allegations of receiving money from Shehbaz Sharif.

“The accusation of receiving money from Shehbaz is incorrect, I never met him or Maryam,” she said, threatening to take the accusers to court.

Reham also requested the Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar to take notice of the issue.

“I cannot understand why Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is apprehensive about my book,” she said in the interview.
