PML-N should leave dual standards, accept SC verdict in Asghar Khan case: Rehman Malik

Islamabad, Oct. 23 (ANI): Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has refused to accept the Supreme Court verdict in the Asghar Khan case because it was against their leadership.

The News quoted Malik, as saying that the PML-N should leave dual standards and accept the Supreme Court's verdict instead of terming the verdict as an "injustice".

Last week, the apex court had ruled that the 1990 election was rigged and that a political cell maintained by the then president Ghulam Ishaq Khan supported the formation of the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) to stop a victory of the PPP.

The ruling said Ghulam Ishaq Khan, former army chief Mirza Aslam Beg and the ISI's former director general Lt-Gen Asad Durrani violated the Constitution, and ordered the government to take legal action against them. (ANI)
