ISLAMABAD – The Islamabad High Court burst into fits of laughter when Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui surprisingly remarked that a black label honey should be arranged for him as winter season is on its way.

Justice Siddiqui in a veiled reference was referring to Sunday’s incident of recovering black label bottle allegedly filled with alcohol from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Revenue Minister, Ali Amin Gandapur’s vehicle, who later expressed that the bottle had honey instead of alcohol.


Justice Siddiqui was hearing the petitions regarding PTI’s Islamabad show down on November 2.

The federal government’s legal representative stated in court that Ali was leading scores of PTI workers towards Bani Gala on Sunday when his vehicle was searched by police recovering arms and wine bottle.

To this, Justice Siddiqui told the counsel not to discuss wine bottles as governments vehicles were too harnessed for transportation of these bottles.

Furthermore, the IHC ordered PTI to  stage sit-in at a designated place barring it from lock down however, PTI counsel Babar Awan while talking to media confirmed that the party would move Supreme Court to challenge the decision.
