LHC issues stay on PTI MNA bogus degree case

The Lahore High Court (LHC) issued a stay order on an application by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Member National Assembly (MNA) Ghulam Sarwar Khan challenging notices issued to him by Bahaudin Zekria University (BZU)’s syndicate committee on a fake degree case.
The LHC’s single bench comprising Justice Syed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi passed the order on a civil miscellaneous application by the petitioner in an already pending matter.
Earlier, the petitioner’s counsel submitted a report that claimed that BZU’s syndicate committee had issued notices to the petitioner in a fake degree case against him.
The counsel said the matter was already pending with the LHC but despite it, the committee had issued notices to the petitioner. He further contended that the committee was not empowered to hold such an enquiry. He pleaded the court to issue a stay order against the committee’s proceedings.
After hearing the arguments, the court issued a stay order and sought replies from the respondents by August 26.
