LAHORE: The record of the election in NA-128 and PP-160 Lahore has been sent to the Nadra, Islamabad, for verification of votes.

Election Tribunal Lahore, presided over by Kazim Ali Malik, on the petition moved by PTI candidates, Karamat Husssain Khokhar and Zaheer Abbas Khokhar, had earlier required Nadra for furnishing report within a month on the authenticity of the votes cast in the said NA and PA constituencies in last general elections.

PML-N candidates Afzal Khokhar and Saiful Malook Khokhar had returned to the assembly defeating the petitioners who have challenged the election inter alia on the allegations of rigging and bogus voting. Both the petitioners deposited a total of over Rs35lakh to seek examination and verification of the votes by Nadra.–Staff Reporter
