Supreme Court has passed its Verdict: Imran Khan safe


The verdict is out! The apex court, on Friday, rejected petitions seeking the disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan and general secretary Jahangir Tareen on different grounds.

A three-member SC bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Faisal Arab, announced the much-awaited verdicts.

The top leadership of PML-N and PTI along with the party workers were also present in the court amid heightened security.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi had filed constitutional petitions against the two PTI leaders for not disclosing their assets, owning offshore companies and running a foreign-aided party. The judgment was reserved last month.

After Khan filed the Panamagate petition, the PML-N, through Abbasi, moved two constitutional petitions in the apex court against the two PTI leaders. However, as the hearing of these petitions could not be conducted along with the Panamagate case, the matter was de-linked by the then CJP Anwar Zaheer Jamali and was later taken up for hearing in May by incumbent CJP Nisar.
