TANDO MUHAMMAD KHAN: After filing a case against MPA Syeda Wahida Shah Bukhari for assaulting a presiding officer, Returning Officer Ali Akbar Siyal on Monday suspended by-polls results of the PS-53 constituency in Tando Muhammad Khan, Express News reported.
Siyal said that results will remain suspended until Bukhari’s case is investigated.
Appearing at a press conference on Sunday with the assistant presiding officer whom she had slapped at a polling station on Saturday, Bukhari said the misunderstanding has been removed and said that she became enraged because of the “rigging complaints”.
A television channel had caught Bukhari on camera smacking the young Shagufta Memon, after which she slapped another elderly woman, Habeeban Memon, driving her to tears.
Bukhari also had met the families of both her victims at their homes and had sorted out the matter.
According to unofficial results, Bukhari had bagged 24,980 in the polls.
