LAHORE – A petition has been submitted in Lahore High Court (LHC) to bar Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s chief Imran Khan from entering courts without any valid reason as he often disgrace the sanctity of the judiciary.
The petitioner Barrister Asjad Saeed maintained on Friday that Imran Khan has disgraced the LHC along with his party workers.
Saeed mentioned in his petition that Khan had a track record of tussling with the court. “He had once apologized from the Supreme Court of Pakistan,” he added.
Seeking strict action against Khan, Saeed said “Entering courts with political workers is illegal and a crime.”
On Wednesday, Imran Khan appeared before the LHC to attend the hearing of election rigging charges against National Assembly’s speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq. On this occasion, PTI’s workers, otherwise known as Insafiyans overfilled the court and raised slogans in favor of Imran Khan.
In chaos PTI workers broke the front door of the court room.
The Chief Justice of LHC took the notice of the incident and asked Imran Khan to submit a written explanation why his political workers had disgraced the court.
