Television actress Najia Baig has alleged that town Nazim of Peshawar Arbab Amir Ayub who is also the brother of ANP MNA Arbab Zahir Khan is threatening her and her family. She has appealed to Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and the home secretary to protect her. She said, "I am not in a position to fight. I need your help."

She told a press conference on Tuesday that the Nasirabad Police Station in Gulberg refused to bring up a case against a member of a powerful political family. She said he wanted to marry her but his family was against this marriage. She said he entered her house with 12 gunmen on July 27 and tortured her brother.

She said if anything happened to her family, the police must bring up a case against Amir. She also alleged that he had told her that the administration was with him and that he was not afraid of anyone. She said she had borrowed Rs 200,000 from Ayub, which she returned when he demanded it.
