LAHORE: The Lahore High Court rejected as non-maintainable a petition seeking to initiate contempt proceedings against Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.
Justice Ayesha A Malik heard the petition on Monday filed by Faisalabad-based Mehmood.
The petitioner said Dr Zubair Farooq, an ex-PCS, was hired for the audit of local government funds in “violation of merit”.
Farooq possesses a fake degree, the petitioner claimed. He was absent from duty for seven months and was living abroad, he alleged.
The petitioner further said a complaint was filed with the finance department but it has not been addressed as yet.
Wondering why the petition nominates the Punjab chief minister as a respondent, the court disposed of the request.
