Fake degree case: IHC disqualifies PML-N lawmaker

Islamabad (Agencies): The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday disqualified Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’ (PML-N) Member of Provincial Assembly Kashif Chaudhry on account of submitting a fake degree to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).


Chaudhry was elected from PP-241 (Bahawalnagar 5) during the 2018 general elections on PML-N seat. The lawmaker reportedly submitted a fake BBA degree to the ECP prior to the general elections.

The petitioner had prayed upon the court to disqualify the PML-N lawmaker on the basis of Article 62(f) of the Constitution.

The court also instructed the ECP to de-notify the lawmaker.
