The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday adjourned for two weeks the hearing on a petition for the disqualification of former premier Imran Khan for concealing the name of his alleged daughter Tyrian Khan in his nomination papers.
Justice Aamer Farooq heard the petition filed by a citizen named Muhammad Sajid. “A separate petition has been filed to make the federal government a respondent in the case,” said the counsel for the petitioner.
“What is the need to make the federal government a respondent in the case? You will have to satisfy us on the admissibility of this petition. Imran Khan is no longer a public office holder. You must consider this point too,” Justice Aamer Farooq said to the petitioner’s counsel.—INP
