CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah in hot waters

ISLAMABAD - Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah lands in hot waters as Supreme Court takes up the disqualification petition against him.

As per the media report, the Supreme Court will take up on Monday (tomorrow) an appeal challenging the Sindh High Court ruling that rejected a petition seeking disqualification of Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah for allegedly failing to disclose his dual nationality.

A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Faisal Arab and Justice Ijazul Ahsan, will hear the appeal in Islamabad.

Roshan Ali Buriro has moved the appeal through his lawyers Hamid Khan and Ajmal Toor, pleading the top court to set aside the SHC verdict and disqualify the Sindh CM as member of the provincial assembly.

He contended that Murad Ali Shah holds the office of Sindh chief minister despite the fact that he possesses foreign nationality.
