Islamabad, Feb 17 (IANS) Pakistan’s Lahore High Court (LHC) has rejected a petition seeking disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan from Parliament, media reported Tuesday.

The petitioner told the court Monday that Article 62 of the constitution demands a member of the assembly to bear good character and be non-profligate, ARY news reported.

Justice Maqbool Mahmood Bajwa rejected the petition.

The petitioner said the PTI chairman’s past is in contrast with the constitution and requested the court to disqualify him forever.

The court declared that it was non-admissible for hearing and discarded it.
