Supreme Court reinstates Ashraf as PCB chairman
The Supreme Court Wednesday reinstated Zaka Ashraf as chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), annulling an earlier decision of the Islamabad High Court.
The Dawn reported that a three-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Anwar Zahir Jamali heard the case against Ashraf's reinstatement on a plea filed by the Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC).
Leading rights activist Asma Jahangir, appearing on behalf of the ministry, said that the high court intruded in matters of policy that may lead to undermining the sport of cricket.
The apex court annulled the high court's decision and reinstated Ashraf. The apex court also issued notices to the parties involved for May 27 and adjourned the hearing of the case.
