LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has suspended removal orders of Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) Managing Director (MD) Arif Hameed and issued notices to the federal government, ministry of petroleum and other parties concerned for September 17.

Arif Hameed had challenged his dismissal in the LHC, contending that he was sacked before completion of his tenure as per the contract signed.
