The Islamabad High Court constituted on Wednesday a divisional bench to hear a case related to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan’s disqualification.
The divisional bench comprises two members and will be headed by Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui. The other member of the bench is Justice Athar Minullah.
On June 12, a member of Justice and Democratic party Abdul Wahab Baloch had filed an appeal against Imran’s nomination papers filed from NA-243 with a returning officer over the Sita White case.
The petition stated Imran Khan used wrong information in his nomination papers and did not mention Tyrian White as his daughter, hence he is not Sadiq and Ameen, and should be disqualified under the Article 62 of the Constitution.
IHC judge Justice Aziz Shaukat Siddiqui had heard the case and issued a notice to Imran Khan, summoning him on August 1. Later on, the bench was changed and Justice Mian Gull Hasan Aurangzeb was made a part of this bench.
