A local lawyer submitted a petition at the Peshawar High Court (PHC) on Thursday against the appointment of provincial assembly’s secretary last year, a local media outlet reported on Thursday.
The lawyer, Ali Azim Afridi, claimed that Nasrullah Khan is occupying the post in violation of a service tribunal judgement and requested the court to declare his appointment notification as illegal.
Nasrullah Khan was appointed by provincial assembly speaker Asad Qaiser last year.
Afridi claimed that Qaiser was repeatedly asked by the tribunal to submit a compliance report but he failed to provide any.
The petition also argued for taking legal action against Nasrullah Khan and Asad Qaiser for contempt of court.
