A sessions court in Lahore on Saturday heard an appeal against Punjab caretaker Chief Minister Hasan Askari and Home Minister Shaukat Javed for allegedly taking discriminatory measures against PML-N workers.
The petition, filed by PML-N leader Rana Mashhood, was heard by Additional Sessions Judge Mohammad Arif Mujahid. In his appeal, Mashhood claimed that both Askari and Sultan had worked to disperse a PML-N workers’ rally on the arrival of former premier Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz in Lahore last month.
The two had arrived from London to turn themselves in to the National Accountability Bureau after they were convicted in a corruption reference. Mashhood’s petition also accused Askari of adversely affecting PML-N’s election campaign.
