25

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday ordered to issue nonbailable arrest warrants for the presiding officer (PO) over non-appearance during the hearing of NA-240 by-poll riot case. A three-member bench of ECP headed by Sindh member Nisar Durrani heard the NA-240 Karachi by-poll riot case.

The counsel of Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) chief Mustafa Kamal appeared before the commission. In his arguments, the PSP lawyer said a worker of the party was killed during firing at the PSP office during the by-poll and alleged that police is conducting partial inquiry into the matter. Rejecting the allegations, SSP Korangi said DIG East and three SPs are conducting impartial inquiry and justice will be provided to the aggrieved party.
