    SC disqualifies PTI leader Rai Hassan Nawaz for life

    The Supreme Court (SC) has disqualified for life Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf leader Rai Hassan Nawaz for concealing assets.
    Hassan was facing a charge of concealing his assets in nomination papers and defaulting on loans.
    In addition, the PTI leader had secured Sahiwal’s NA-162 constituency from a PTI ticket in the 2013 general elections but his victory was challenged by the runner-up and he got disqualified in 2015.
    During the session, which was presided over by the Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed, the court noted that a five-member bench had already proclaimed Rai Hassan as not being honest and truthful as per the Constitution.
    The NA-162 seat was later won by PML-N’s Tufail Jutt in the by-election in September 2016.
    Rai Hasan Nawaz, who was elected into the National Assembly from NA-162 Sahiwal, was accused of taking loan of Rs220 million from a bank in 1992 but did not repay the money.
    Justice Sheikh disqualified Rai Hassan under the Article 62(1)(f) which manifest that the disqualification is for life.
