Usman Dar’s mother, sister-in-law’s nomination papers rejected


ISLAMABAD, DEC 30 /DNA/ – The nomination papers of the Dar family of PTI leader Usman Dar from the National Assembly constituency of NA-71 of Sialkot have been rejected.

Usman Dar’s mother, Rehana Dar, and sister-in-law submitted their nomination papers from Sialkot’s constituency, NA-71, to participate in the 2024 general elections, which were rejected on Saturday.

It should be noted that Usman Dar’s brother, Umar Dar’s wife, also submitted nomination papers from NA-71.

Both mother-in-law and sister-in-law had submitted papers against PML-N leader Khawaja Asif from NA-71.

The papers were rejected by the returning officer (RO) over non-payment of social security dues and non-disclosure of assets.

Earlier in the day, Usman’s brother Umar Dar was arrested from Lahore and police claimed he was wanted by the police in five cases.

Dar’s mother Rehana alleged in a video message that Umar was abducted from home to stop him from participating in the elections.

On the other hand, an application was filed in the Lahore High Court against Umar Dar’s arrest. The petition has made the Punjab police chief, Lahore CCPO and others parties in the case. 

The petitioner has adopted the stance that Umar Dar went to a private hotel for dinner on Friday where more than 40 people, including those in police uniform, abducted him. The plea asked the court to order that Umar Dar be recovered and produced in court.

According to the police, Umar Dar is wanted in five cases of incitement and anti-state sloganeering in May 9 cases.=DNA
