SAHIWAL: District Monitoring Officer for PP 217 Haider Riaz has ordered an inquiry against PTI candidate Zain Qureshi, son of former foreign minister and party Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi, for indulging in corrupt practices during by-election campaign in UC-44, Multan.

The inquiry is being conducted over a complaint received through social media. It says Zain Qureshi is offering a brand new motorcycle to each voter who manages 10 votes in his favour.

The inquiry letter says such practices are considered corrupt practices and Article 218(3) of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan empowers the Election Commission to guard against corrupt practices. The inquiry has been marked to Sadar assistant commissioner and DRTA secretary, Multan.
