LAHORE: A full bench of the Lahore High Court on Friday refused to issue a direction against the November 30 public gathering of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) after a deputy attorney general stated that the government had allowed the PTI to hold the gathering in question. He said that the government said it would intervene if law and order in the Capital was disturbed. Justice Khalid Mehmood Khan also remarked that placing containers in the city would serve no purpose. Earlier, Advocate AK Dogar the petitioner had told the court that the PTI had threatened to overthrow the elected government through a sit-in in Islamabad. Dogar said Imran Khan had not been dealt with according to law and was threatening peace in the capital. He urged the court to direct the federal government to restrain Khan from making speeches likely to disturb law and order.
