The Financial Daily - - SPORTS & CONTINUATIONS -

LA­HORE: A pe­ti­tion was filed to the La­hore High Court ( LHC) on Fri­day seek­ing reg­is­tra­tion of trea­son case against chief of Awami Mus­lim League ( AML), Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.

Ac­cord­ing to Me­dia Re­ports , Im­tiaz Ahmed, a com­mon cit­i­zen, pe­ti­tioned the court seek­ing the sea­soned politi­cian's trial for trea­son blam­ing him for in­cit­ing vi­o­lence.

The pe­ti­tioner stated that Sheikh Rashid, an ally of Pak­istan Tehreek- e- In­saf chief Im­ran Khan, has at­tempted to harm the coun­try's in­tegrity through his pro­vok­ing pub­lic speeches.

The move comes two days be­fore PTI's Nov 30 rally in Islamabad for which Khan has called his tigers to gather in the fed­eral cap­i­tal for a de­ci­sive show­down. -On­line
