A lo­cal court of Karachi has is­sued notice to Elec­tion Com­mis­sion (EC) in dual na­tion­al­ity case against in­te­rior min­is­ter Rehman Ma­lik and granted ex­emp­tion to the in­te­rior min­is­ter from ap­pear­ing be­fore it.

In­te­rior Min­is­ter Rehman Ma­lik along with ad­di­tional chief sec­re­tary for in­te­rior Wasim Ah­mad ap­peared in the court of dis­trict and ses­sions judge South Ah­mad Saba Thurs­day.

The pe­ti­tioner Elec­tion Com­mis­sion and other ac­cused per­sons were not present in the court on this oc­ca­sion.

The court ex­pressed dis­plea­sure over non com­ple­tion of case file and di­rected pro­vin­cial elec­tion com­mis­sion not only to re­main present in the court on next hear­ing but also pro­vide at­tested copy of Supreme Court de­ci­sion to it be­cause the case can not be heard with­out it.

The court asked in­te­rior min­is­ter not to come to court on next hear­ing if he wills so and ob­tain the in­for­ma­tion in this con­nec­tion through his coun­sels. Court will sum­mon him if need arises, court added.
