PML-N wants Pak SC to look into ISI's role in country's politics

Islamabad, Wed, 25 Jan 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Jan 25 (ANI): After the Supreme Court's decision to take up a controversial decade-old case regarding the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) role in politics, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has asked the court not overlook the agency's role in the present, as well as former president Pervez Musharraf's regime.


The request was reportedly made through an official statement released by Opposition leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan's office.


"It would be a mockery of justice if the matter is not looked into by the court," The Express Tribune quoted Nisar, as saying.


Earlier, Nisar claimed that he had evidence to substantiate his allegations that agencies were using parties like the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) to undermine the PML-N.


Earlier this week, the Supreme Court had set February 29 as the date for the hearing of a decade-old petition filed by former Pakistan Tehrik-e-Istaqlal chief Asghar Khan against politicians receiving funds from the Inter Services Intelligence agency (ISI).


Asghar, who was heading the little-known Pakistan Tehrik-e-Istaqlal, recently joined the more prominent PTI at a joint news conference with Imran Khan.


Both Khans had called upon Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry to immediately take up the petition filed by Asghar to punish those politicians and political groups who have been receiving funds from the ISI. (ANI)
