LAHORE: 

An election tribunal of the Lahore High Court consisting of Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial on Tuesday found former PML-N MPA and parliamentary secretary for religious affairs Iftikhar Ahmad Khan guilty of contesting the last elections with a fake degree, thus disqualifying him from the upcoming polls.

Khan was elected to the Punjab Assembly in 2008 from PP-81, Jhang-IX. Iqbal Khan, an independent candidate who lost the elections at that constituency, had alleged that the MPA had a fake BA degree. The tribunal had reserved its verdict last November.

    It took 5 years to get a verdict and that is delivered after its all over. Shame on you Mr. Iftikhar Ahmed Khan. And of all the portfloios you could hold, you were the parlimantary secretay of religious affairs!! Obviously you are devoid of any conscience.
