ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday filed a plea in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) challenging the federal government’s decision to impose section 144 in Islamabad ahead of the expected PTI’s long march.

In a petition, PTI senior leader and former Federal Minister Asad Umar asked the IHC to declare imposition of  section 144 in Islamabad unconstitutional.

“Section 144 is unconstitutional to prevent peaceful protest,” the plea further stated.

Meanwhile, the Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Athar Minallah will hear the petition on Monday.
