Following multiple reports and claims of her alleged involvement in corruption and hoarding wealth, Farah Khan, who is a close friend of Bushra Bibi, finally broke her silence and denied all the accusations.

Farah Khan - who is also known as Farah Shahzadi - said in a statement issued on her official social media accounts that she condemns all accusations and rumours about her and her family.

She claimed that she has never been involved in politics or been in a position to interfere in the government's affairs.

"I outrightly condemn all accusations and rumors with regards to myself and my family. I have neither involved myself in politics nor was I ever in a position to interfere in Governmental affairs. Those who have attempted to tarnish my character must remember their sisters," Farah wrote.

Farah Khan involved in dollar hoarding: report

Farah was reportedly buying dollars from the market and stocking them up in her foreign currency account. During a period of nine months, from January to September 2021, Farah deposited $249,650 in cash, according to a media report.

Farah failed to disclose the source of her funds and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) issued an inquiry notice against her for depositing a huge amount of foreign currency.

After four months, no progress was made in the investigation. Sources informed The News that the case was mysteriously put down as Farah had close connections with senior officials.

'Farah Khan carried handbag worth $90,000'

Former finance minister Miftah Ismail alleged that the handbag carried by Farah Khan costs $90,000.

The former minister's comment came after a picture of Farah went viral on social media.

Ismail, while addressing a press conference alongside former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, said that PML-N has been saying the same things that the estranged PTI leader Aleem Khan had previously said about Farah.

The PML-N leader alleged that the first lady’s close aide “took the money” for the transfer of civil servants in Punjab.

“Who did that money go to?” asked Ismail, adding that the PTI was claiming that Farah Khan cannot be a corrupt person as she was a “private person”.

“She can engage in corrupt activities because she is friends with the wives of public officeholders. She was someone’s frontwoman,” alleged Ismail.
