Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah gets big relief from Supreme Court
The Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan on Thursday indefinitely postponed the hearing on the contempt of court petition filed against Federal Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah.
The apex court also directed petitioner Pervaiz Elahi’s lawyer to bring more evidence on record for perusal.
Justice Ijazul Ahsan asked the plaintiff to prove the allegation of contempt of court by highlighting orders that were ignored.
“We are sitting here and our eyes are not shut. Every violation [of court orders] will be accounted for.”
PTI’s Punjab Chief Minister candidate Pervaiz Elahi filed a petition against Rana Sanaullah for threatening to abduct PTI and PML-Q MPAs to influence the runoff election for Punjab CM slot scheduled for Friday.
Elahi’s counsel, Faisal, also read the transcript of the federal minister’s speech, which he claimed, hinted at planned violence.
