ECP orders inquiry against Aleem Khan

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday ordered an inquiry against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Abdul Aleem Khan for submitting fake affidavits.
Chief election commissioner Justice (retd) Sardar Mehmood Raza Khan heard a petition filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Sardar Ayaz Sadiq.
Sadiq had moved the ECP against Aleem for filing fake affidavits to support his petition to declare NA-122, Lahore by-election results null and void as they were held under previous delimitation.
In his petition, the PML-N leader further stated that the Punjab senior minister had also submitted fake affidavits regarding transfer of votes in the NA-122 constituency.
Accepting Sadiq’s petition, the ECP directed him to submit his plea in sessions court.
The ECP also ordered an inquiry against the Punjab senior minister.
