ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Saturday delisted the hearing of a case concerning an alleged fake academic degree held by Director General National Accountability Bureau (DG NAB) Lahore Major (Retd) Shahzad Saleem.
The registrar’s office of the apex court had earlier fixed the case for hearing on November 12, 2018 by a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar.
The court has also withdrawn its notices issued to the petitioner, journalist Asad Kharal. A new date for hearing of the case is yet to be issued by the registrar’s office.
The Lahore director general of the bureau is already facing an internal probe over his alleged fake degree on the orders of the Supreme Court.
Furthermore, Chairman National Accountability Bureau Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal summoned from all broadcast organisations the record of all media appearances by DG NAB Lahore Saleem Shehzad, a press release stated on Friday.
