ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan and PTI General Secretary Jehangir Tareen case has been started in the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

Three-member bench of the Supreme Court on Wednesday began hearing a petition seeking the disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and PTI Secretary General Jehangir Tareen.

The petition, filed by the PML-N's Hanif Abbasi, accuses the two PTI leaders of not declaring their assets to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and seeks to unseat them based on alleged violations of the lncome Tax Ordinance 1979 and Peoples Act 1974.

The petition, which was accepted by the apex court in November last year, also claims that the PTI is a 'foreign-funded' party.

During Wednesday's hearing, Abbasi's counsel, Muhammad Akram Sheikh, began his arguments before Chief Justice Saqib Nasir, Justice Umar Ata Bindial and Justice Faisal Arab.
