The Sindh High Court has rejected an anti-polio vaxxer’s plea imposing a Rs25,000 fine on the woman petitioner for bringing a frivolous petition, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The Sindh High Court on Monday heard a unique petition seeking disbanding of polio drops administration. A woman petitioner, Bisma Naureen, stated in her petition that the polio vaccination was causing more harm than cure praying to the court to disband the administration of polio drops. 

Irked by her logic, the high court reprimanded the petitioner saying if she had no knowledge of the legal affairs, how she could talk about the law. 

The counsel for the Sindh government argued that the entire world except Pakistan and Afghanistan had become polio free. 

The court rejected the petition and imposed a fine to the tune of Rs25,000 on the woman petitioner for submitting a vain petition.
