Islamabad High Court (IHC) Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui has been removed from a bench due to hear Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) supremo Imran Khan’s disqualification case, Express News reported on Sunday.
A new bench including Justice Mian Hassan Aurangzeb has been constituted to hear the case. Justices Siddiqui and Amir Farooq were part of the original bench that had given the PTI chairman till August 1 to file a reply.
Former chief justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry had moved court over Khan’s disqualification in line with the provisions of Article 62. Chaudhry, who now heads a political party, said the PTI had “lied about his daughter Tyrian.” Therefore, he said, Khan was not sadiq and ameen.
