Islamabad (Staff Report): The Supreme Court (SC) has rejected PTI 's candidate Usman Dar’s review petition against Federal Minister for Water and Power Khawaja Muhammad Asif in NA-110 polls rigging case.

A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar heard the case and maintained an earlier decision in the favour of the minister.

Disposing off the petition , the chief justice observed that presenting 10 witnesses in one's favour was not enough to declare an election outlawed.

Earlier in Nov 2016, the apex court had rejected a petition challenging his election from the NA-110 (Sialkot) constituency.

The minister had bagged 92,484 votes, against his main rival Usman Dar’s 71,573 votes during the May 2013 general elections.
