It’s worth noting that on February 21, the Supreme Court dismissed a petition seeking to invalidate the February 8 elections and imposed a fine of Rs0.5 million on the petitioner for non-appearance.

A three-member bench, led by Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa and including Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Musarrat Hilali, heard the petition filed by Brig (retd) Ali Khan.

The petition was disposed of after the petitioner withdrew it. Furthermore, the apex court prohibited Khan from using the title ‘brigadier’ before his name.

Earlier, on February 19, the Supreme Court had issued a notice to the petitioner through the Ministry of Defense, but due to his unavailability, he failed to appear before the court.
