Imran Khan files review petition in Musharraf's dual offices case

Islamabad, Oct 12 : Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief and former cricketer Imran Khan has filed a petition in the Supreme Court to review the September 28 ruling of the court in the dual offices case of President General Pervez Musharraf.

Khan said that his petition, which was among five other petitions, was heard at length from September 17 to 28, and the bench headed by Justice Rana Bhagwandas, discussed all questions of law, including the ones on maintainability and merits of the case.

However, in its September 28 order, the bench decreed by six votes to three that the petitions were not maintainable, the Daily Times reported.

Khan said that the detailed reasons had not yet been given by eight out of nine judges. Only Justice Falak Sher gave detailed reasons in his judgement.

Khan said it was obvious that four out of nine judges had laid down that Musharraf was not qualified to contest the presidential election, while the opinions of the remaining five judges were still awaited. (ANI)
