ISLAMABAD – A former security guard of the PML-N’s MNA Sumaira Malik fell unconscious and died later in hospital after hearing Supreme Court of Pakistan’s judgment about her disqualification on Monday.
Mohammad Riaz, the security guard, was present in the court where he fainted following SC’s ruling. He was immediately shifted to the Poly Clinic, Islamabad where he died.
It is to be mentioned here that the court had disqualified Sumaira Malik for possessing fake degree this morning.
Malik was elected member National Assembly on PML-N’s ticket from Khushab town of Punjab in 2008.
Her victory was challenged in the Supreme Court by rival candidate Malik Omar Aslam who stated in his petition that the lawmaker has fake academic record and that she hired a person impersonating her in degree examinations.
Today, the apex court declared null and void her victory in general elections, and said in its verdict that she is no more entitled to hold a public office and run for parliamentary elections.
