LAHORE: Justice Atir Mahmood of Lahore High Court disposed of a petition seeking disqualification of Haq Nawaz Jhangvi's son MPA Masroor Nawaz Jhangvi and directed the election tribunal to look into the representation against him.
Justice Atir Mahmood took up a petition filed by Muzafar Abbas, a voter of PP-78, challenging the decision of the election tribunal. The petitioner contended that the election tribunal dismissed the petition he had filed seeking disqualification of MPA Masroor Nawaz Jhangvi as non-maintainable. He told the court that the tribunal had not properly heard him and ignored the objections he raised.
The petitioner also said Masroor Nawaz Jhangvi had been been nominated in 17 cases and his name has also been put in the fourth schedule of Interior Ministry. He further submitted in his petition that Masroor Jhangvi was not eligible to become a member of the provincial assembly.
