LAHORE - Justice Mamoon Rasheed Sheikh of the Lahore High Court on Tuesday declined hearing of petition challenging eligibility of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan for personal reasons.

The judge sent the case to chief Justice to fix it before any other bench. Advocate Anwar Sohail had filed the petition and submitted that Imran Khan during his march in Islamabad tried to occupy Parliament and also attacked Pakistan Television office. He said Imran had violated Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution. He prayed the court to declare him disqualified from contesting election and set aside his membership of the parliament.

In another case, the LHC extended stay on the execution of a 67 years old man and sought assistance of the Attorney General of Pakistan for Wednesday (today). Maqbool Hussain, convict on death row, had challenged his execution.
