CJP Nisar takes notice of PTI MPA Imran Shah's assault on citizen
The Supreme Court's public relations officer confirmed the suo moto days after Dawood Chauhan was slapped publicly by the lawmaker in question.
The top court has sought a report from both parties involved in the incident that had stirred outrage on social media.
A video of Shah slapping Chauhan stumped internet on Tuesday. The PTI leadership had taken notice of the incident and issued a show-cause notice to Shah.
Senior party leader Firdous Naqvi had also tweeted that he had launched a probe into the matter and that Shah's party membership had been suspended for a month.
