“Pay Rs.10 crore for defaming me and leveling false allegations against me, which will be donated to the Medical center of Lahore High Court Bar Association,” he said.
“Shoaib Akhtar remarks have affected by goodwill and have said false things about me on social media. His remarks were heard all over so I decided to send a legal notice,” he added.
