ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Senator Nehal Hashmi on Tuesday has submitted his reply in Supreme Court (SC) on account of holding threats against Joint Investigation Team (JIT) members, stating that his speech was treated as out of the context.
Dunya News has obtained Hashmi’s reply according to which all the allegations were denied as no act of contempt was committed by the answering respondent.
“I only made the speech once but the media replayed it several time,” the petition said.
Nehal Hashmi also demanded to register case against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, Naeem-ul-Haque and Fawad Chaudhry for presenting his speech in a wrong way.
“The court has appointed Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf as a prosecutor in the case,” the petition stated, adding that the AG calling on the Sindh government to take action against Hashmi is surprising in this context.
Earlier, the ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) expelled Senator Nehal Hashmi from the party over his controversial speech. The decision was taken on a report submitted by the disciplinary committee headed by Raja Zaffarul Haq.
