A five-member bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan ordered Imran Khan to file his reply till 21st of February.
The notice was issued as PTI’s former member Akbar S. Babar filed a contempt petition against PTI Chief Imran Khan in the aftermath of his comments regarding embezzlement of party funds.
He was referring to a statement by Imran Khan during an interview in which he claimed that he had not apologized to the ECP over PTI’s fundings, but his party’s counsel did so in his personal capacity.
“There is a third law for Imran Khan and that is the law of jungle,” petitioner Babar said while talking to the media.
“The leader who preaches morality is himself not standing by his word,” he asserted
Later talking to newsmen, PML-N leader Daniyal Aziz said that a contempt case had been filed against PTI Chief Imran Khan in the Election Commission.
“Imran Khan is trying to escape from the court,” Daniyal Aziz said.
