Pakistan:  The Peshawar High Court on Thursday summoned two federal ministers, an aide to PM Imran Khan and two others over two identical petitions seeking their prosecution for committing contempt of a special court, Dawn News reported.

A bench consisting of Justice Roohul Amin Khan and Justice Ijaz Anwar ordered the alleged contemnors, including federal ministers Barrister Farogh Naseem and Fawad Chaudhry, special assistant to the prime minister Mirza Shahzad Akbar, former aide to the premier Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan and former attorney general Anwar Mansoor Khan to appear before it on the next hearing to be fixed later, reports the Pakistani newspaper.

The court was also hearing two identical petitions filed by lawyers Malik Ajmal Khan and Syed Azizuddin Kakakhel under Article 204 of the Constitution and Contempt of Court Ordinance, 2003.

The bench also directed the petitioners to file their respective replies to a formal request of federal law minister Barrister Farogh Naseem for the rejection of petitions insisting they are not maintainable under the Constitution, reports Dawn News.
