The Returning Officer (RO) of NA-245 Karachi rejected the nomination papers of MQM leader Dr. Farooq Sattar for not mentioning the two cases registered against him. Returning Officer (RO) Ahsan Khan said Sattar’s candidature for NA-245 had been rejected because he is an absconder in two cases and did not mention this in his nomination papers.
However, the MQM-P’s senior-most parliamentarians and seasoned politician’s counsel remarked that his client was unaware of the two cases.
Sattar has submitted nomination papers from three constituencies in Karachi — NA-241, 245 and 247 to contest the July 25th general elections.
