LAHORE - Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed of LHC Thursday directed the Deputy Attorney General to take instructions from federal government and assist the court on a petition against Senate Chairman Farooq H Naik and Interior Minister Rehman Malik . The Judge passed the order while hearing a petition filed by a British national of Pakistani origin Mahfooz Ahmad Khan. The petitioner submitted that Naik may be disqualified for not proceeding on a reference sent by him (the petitioner) against the Senate membership of Interior Minister Rehman Malik . The court will resume further proceedings on the matter on June 3. Earlier, the petitioner counsel pleaded that Malik had been removed from official service in Federal Investigation Age-ncy (FIA) and was not eligible to become a member of the Senate. The petitioners lawyer Mujibullah Khan said the petitioner had filed a reference against Maliks eligibility, however, the Chairman Senate did not forward the reference to election commission. He said it was responsibility of the Chairman Senate under article 63(b) of the Constitution to forward the said reference to election commission for needful action. The lawyer said the Senate Chairman did not take action on the reference so far and subsequently Malik was elected to the Senate. The petitioner further prayed that Chairman Senate may be disqualified for failing to fulfil his constitutional responsibilities. The Judge ordered the LHC office to give a copy of the petition to the deputy attorney general Naveed Inayat Malik so that he could assist the court after taking necessary instructions from the govt on the matter.
