    Imran Khan expels Farooq Bandiyal from PTI- No room in PTI for criminals

    Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has expelled Farooq Bandiyal from the party within 24 hours of joining after Khan heard about his heinous crime, saying there is no place for ‘convicted criminals’ in PTI. 
    PTI leader Naeemul Haq in his twitter message said, “Farooq Bandiyal’s entry into PTI was unfortunate. He has been expelled from the party with immediate effect.”He went on to say, “We have no place for people with such record in our party. He should not even be in any political party.”
    Earlier, PTI Chairman Imran Khan took strict notice of the report that a convicted criminal had become part of the PTI, said party spokesman Fawad Hussain Chaudhry.He said Imran formed a single-member committee and tasked Naeemul Haq to present the facts within three days, saying that PTI would not compromise moral standards in any case. 
    Imran Khan took notice after severe criticism on social media over joining of Farooq Bandiyal, a transporter from Khushab.
    Social media erupted into outrage that a convicted person had joined PTI.
    It has been alleged on social media that Farooq Bandiyal was the prime culprit in renowned actress Shabnam rape and robbery case. The entire gang was given death sentence during General Ziaul Haq regime, but they pressurized family for pardon.
    The rape and robbery case surfaced in 1978.
    Farooq Bandiyal had joined PTI a day earlier after holding meeting with Imran Khan.A politician from Punjab, who was convicted of raping a former film star Shabnam before being pardoned in Zia regime, has been expelled from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) hours after he was welcomed by the party chairman on Thursday.
    Farooq Bandial is one of those five rapists who gang-raped Shabnam, in 1979, in front of her husband and son. Along with his gang, he received death penalty which was overturned after the family of actress was forced to pardon the rapists.Jharna Basak, known by the stage name Shabnam, is a Bangladeshi stage and film actress. Actor Waheed Murad introduced her to the Pakistani film industry by offering her a lead role in his film Samundar in 1968.She had to leave the film industry, as well as the country, following the shocking incident.
    PTI spokesman Fawad Hussain Chaudhry has confirmed the party chief has taken notice of Bandial being part of the ‘Change’, adding the party will never compromise on ethical standards.Naeem-ul-Haq has been mandated to make a report in this regard, the spokesman added.
    Later, following the massive criticism by opponents and party workers alike on social media, Imran Khan kicked Bandial out of the party.
