Justice Mamoon Rashid heard the case pertaining to plea seeking disqualification of Khawaja Asif who had won NA-73 seat in 2018General Election. On September 22, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Usman Dar had challenged Khawaja Asif’s victory.

In his petition, Dar contended that Khawaja Asif had submitted an unverified affidavit along with his nomination papers.
