A two-member Sindh High Court (SHC) bench headed by Chief Justice Musheer Alam with Justice Hasan Azhar Rizvi as the other member has restrained the former office-bearers of CPNE (Khushnood Group) from using the CPNE accounts. The learned court passed the interim order on a constitutional petition filed by Ilyas Shakir, editor Qaumi Akhbar and secretary general CPNE.
In his petition Ilyas Shakir has submitted that he is one of the elected office-bearers of CPNE but the former office-bearers still occupy the premises of the registered office of CPNE. The petitioner prayed to the court to appoint a Nazir who should take possession of the office. He further prayed that order be passed for fresh elections to be held under the supervision of Nazir so that genuine and elected office-bearers could run the CPNE affairs.
The SHC has called for reply from the respondents on 26 May, 2011. The learned court has also summoned Advocate General Sindh and Deputy Attorney General on the date.(The News)
