IHC Dismisses Petition to Remove Aviation Minister

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday dismissed as non-maintainable a petition seeking to stop Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan from performing his duties.

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah announced this verdict after hearing arguments on the petition.

Advocate Tariq Asad filed the petition, contending that Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar’s statement about alleged fake or improper licences of pilots has dented the image of the country.

He requested the court to constitute a judicial commission to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the issue of dubious licences of pilots and order removal of the minister from his position.
