LAHORE - A man on Tuesday approached the Lahore High Court against house arrest of his son accused of throwing ink on the face of Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif during a PML-N convention in Sialkot.

Fiaz Rasool threw ink on the face of Asif from a bottle and raised the slogan “Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah”.

Muhammad Ameer, father of the accused, filed the petition, contending the house arrest of accused Fiaz Rasool was illegal. The counsel for the petitioner argued that the order for 30-day house arrest of an accused was not only illegal but also unjustified. He prayed to the court to declare null and void the order of house arrest of the accused.

PETITION AGAINST CM: The LHC on Tuesday dismissed as not maintainable a petition moved by a local citizen seeking disqualification of Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif for allegedly having two offices at the same time in violation of law.  Justice Abid Aziz Sheikh was hearing the case. A citizen moved the petition saying that Sharif was holding two offices at the same time. He said he could not hold two offices at the same time under the law. He pleaded that on one hand Sharif was Punjab chief minister and on the other he was chairperson of the Punjab Mass Transit Authority. He contended the chief minister violated his oath by having two different offices. He prayed to the court that the CM be disqualified under article 62 and 63 of the constitution for having two offices at the same time.
