An appeal was filed in the Supreme Court (SC) on Monday against the objections raised by the apex court’s registrar to the petition against Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) Tiger Force and the party’s long march on Islamabad, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

In his appeal, Asghar Ali Sheikh, a citizen, made former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan, former interior minister Sheikh Rasheed, PTI leaders Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Fawad Chaudhry respondents, and prayed to the court to admit the petition for the hearing by declaring the registrar’s decision, dated June 18, 2022, null and void; order the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to investigate the payments made to the Tiger Force by former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan, and order constitution of a joint investigation team (JIT) to further probe the role of PTI chairman and other party leaders in the case.  

It was alleged in the appeal that former interior minister Sheikh Rasheed was threatening the state institutions in his speeches, and that the PTI chairman might use the Tiger Force against the government.   

The petitioner also alleged that the purpose of PTI’s long march on Islamabad was to spread ‘anarchy’ in the country. “The former premier pays to members of the Force to cause damage to the country. He has already, in one of his speeches, has talked about the division of the country into three and the nuclear assets landing in unsafe hands,” read the petition.
