Petition League draging Imran Khan in Asghar Khan's Petition

The Petition League (Pakistan Muslim League) is trying to drag Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan in Asghar Khan's Petition, as Supreme Court has announced to take up decade-old Case regarding the role of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in politics.

The Petition League asked the Court to not overlook the Agency’s political role at present, as well as during General Pervaiz Musharraf's regime, when Imran Khan used to visit Army House regularly.

Senior Leader of Petition League and Opposition Leader in National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said, "It would be a Mockery of Justice if the matter is not looked into by the Court,", in what appeared to be a thinly veiled reference to the much talked about emergence of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf.

Earlier, Nisar claimed that he had evidence to substantiate his allegations that Agencies were using parties like the PTI to undermine the League.

In 1996 a petition was filed by Air Marshal (Retired) Asghar Khan in the Supreme Court of Pakistan (HRC 19/96) against the Chief Of Army Staff (Retired) General Mirza Muhammad Aslam Beg, the Former Inter Services Intelligence Chief Lieutenant General (Retired) Asad Durrani and Younis Habib of Habib Bank and Mehran Bank, relating to the disbursement of Public Money and its misuse for "Political Purposes".
