LAHORE: Fawad Khan's media team has come forth denying reports that suggest he refused an anti-polio team to administer polio drops to his daughter.
Refuting the claims, Fawad's media team has issued a statement saying: It has been widely reported that an FIR has been registered against Fawad Khan stating that he on February 19 interfered with governmental efforts to vaccinate his daughter at his residence. Nothing could be further from the truth as neither of the parents were home at the time of visit by the anti-polio team.
The statement added, "Fawad Khan has been outside Pakistan since February 13, where he performed at the PSL opening ceremony in Dubai and is presently in the United States. His travel history clearly demonstrates the manufactured nature of the FIR and he has just come to know of the FIR through the press."
"Fawad Khan fully supports the anti-polio drive and is very well aware of the guidelines of WHO and CDC. The vaccination of Fawad’s daughter is up to date and the record there to support the same is available," it stated further.
"Fawad reserves the right for appropriate legal redress, including all such remedies against any damages caused by this event, should the FIR not be cancelled," concluded the statement.
Khan was booked for not letting polio drops to be administered to his children, said the spokesperson of Prime Minister's Polio taskforce Babar Bin Ata, on Wednesday.
"Mrs Fawad thinks getting their daughter immunised from UK will give the child protection against WPV1 strain. Protection against Wild Poliovirus can only be guaranteed with Oral Polio Vaccine," Ata said.
He went on to add that as told by the Lahore Deputy Commissioner, Khan's driver and family misbehaved with the anti-polio team.
"Fawad is our pride, I request him to allow teams to vaccinate the child. Lahore has had a polio case last week, we must protect the child," Ata further tweeted.
