LAHORE - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Pakistan was challenged in Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday.
The petition was filed by Muneer Ahmad through Advocate Azhar Siddique. The petition has adopted the stance that Modi along with 120-member delegation visited Pakistan without any official permission.
The plea stated that the arrival was informed on social media however; no legal procedure was carried out for the visit whereas no action was also taken by law enforcement agencies and Interior Ministry in this regard.
Federal government, Ministry of Civil Aviation and Airport Security Force (ASF) were made parties in the petition. Modi paid a surprise visit to Pakistan and met Nawaz Sharif on December 25.
The two prime ministers held an hour and a half long meeting at Prime Minister Nawaz’s personal residence in Lahore at Jati Umra.
