Pakistan's new prime minister Friday backed a parliamentary investigation into allegations of sexual harassment leveled by a female lawmaker against firebrand opposition leader Imran Khan, in a scandal that has gripped the conservative country.The scandal erupted after Ayesha Gulalai, a National Assembly member from conservative Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, accused Khan and other leaders of his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party of sending obscene text messages and promoting a culture of sexism.In a televised press conference earlier this week Gulalai accused Khan of harassing female leaders in the PTI and resigned from the party.Gulalai has not released any of the alleged text messages, prompting many in Pakistan to believe the case may be politically motivated.
