LAHORE: Lahore High Court Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial on Tuesday summoned PML-N MPA Rana Asif for June 29 to explain why Pakistan origin card was issued to him, if he did not have dual nationality.
The CJ also sought a written reply from the respondent MPA in this regard.
The CJ passed the order while hearing a petition filed by Faisal Ilyas Sadiq through his counsel Saif-ul-Malook seeking disqualification of MPA Rana Asif.
