*ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan gets a blow from the Supreme Court of Pakistan.*
*SC has asked PM Khan to pay a fine in a case pertaining to illegal constructions in Banigala. *
Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, who headed a bench of the Supreme Court, directed the prime minister to submit a compliance report after paying the penalty.
“Notice was taken on a complaint by the prime minister himself. He will have to pay a fine at first,” the top judge remarked.
The CJP had taken a notice of encroachments in Banigala on a request by the prime minister in May, 2017.
Subsequently, the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) administration submitted a report, informing the court that 122 illegal constructions in the area include a portion of Imran Khan’s 300 kanal residence.
