The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday adjourned for two weeks the hearing on a petition for the disqualification of former premier Imran Khan for concealing the name of his alleged daughter Tyrian Khan in his nomination papers, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Justice Aamer Farooq heard the petition filed by a citizen named Muhammad Sajid. “A separate petition has been filed to make the federal government a respondent in the case,” said the counsel for the petitioner.

“What is the need to make the federal government a respondent in the case? You will have to satisfy us on the admissibility of this petition. Imran Khan is no longer a public office holder. You must consider this point too,” Justice Aamer Farooq said to the petitioner’s counsel.

“Imran Khan’s resignation has not been accepted yet,” the petitioner’s lawyer argued before the court.

“Why should we not send this case to the election commission? Imran Khan gave his affidavit to the election commission. Faisal Vawda’s case was also of the same nature, and it had been sent to the election commission,” Justice Aamer Farooq said.

“You have to satisfy the court on all these points,” he added and adjourned the hearing on the petition for two weeks.
