Votes' verification: PML-N MNA's petition referred to LHC CJ

Lahore High Court Justice Nasir Saeed Sheikh here on Monday referred the petition of PML-N MNA Malik Riaz to the Chief Justice, LHC, challenging an order of verification of votes of his constituency NA-118 through thumb impressions. Earlier, a Law officer said that matter was of important nature, therefore, a larger bench should be constituted to hear the case.

Petitioner Malik Riaz had approached the LHC against an order of the Election Tribunal issued in response to a petition of PTI's defeated candidate Hamid Zaman for verification of votes through thumb impressions.
