PESHAWAR, 5 November: The Peshawar High Court Thursday served notice on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan for allegedly commenting on a sub judice matter. A two-member bench comprising Justice Waqar Ahmad Seth and Justice Muhammad Younis Thaheem ordered Khan to submit a written reply by November 12.

The court passed these orders while hearing a petition filed by Khyber Medical Teachers Association challenging the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Medical and Teaching Institutions Reforms Act 2015. The petitioners’ counsel said that Imran Khan tried to influence the court by passing remarks on a sub judice matter, therefore he should be served with a contempt of court notice.

PTI chief Imran Khan while addressing a news conference in Peshawar the other day warned some of the doctors to abstain from creating hurdles in the implementation of the reforms act. Khan had labeled the doctors and paramedical staff who had challenged the law in the high court as ‘mafia’ and alleged that they were least interested in people’s problems and were lured by their vested interest.

Khan had also warned that his party workers would stage protest demonstrations outside the residences of the doctors who had not been following government reforms’ agenda. He had also requested the high court to vacate the stay in the best interest of the people of the province.
