The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday reserved the verdict on the maintainability of a petition seeking the removal of PTI chief Imran Khan from the position of party chairman.

The petitioner had maintained in the plea that Khan has become ineligible to hold the party chairman’s post after being disqualified by the ECP in the constituency NA-95. He requested the court to order Khan to be removed from the position of party chairman.
