The Peshawar High Court summoned Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday to appear before it on December 13 in a case filed by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf chief’s rival candidate in the July 25 General Elections over his alleged relation with a U.S. national, Sita White.

The division bench of the Court comprising Justices Ikramullah Khan and Ishtiaq Ibrahim issued the notices to Khan on a writ petition filed by Inamullah Khan, his rival candidate in July 25 elections from Bannu constituency.

The petitioner said that Mr. Khan has a daughter, Tyrian White, from Sita White which he has not mentioned in his nomination papers. Therefore, petitioner added, Mr. Khan does not fulfill the criteria under Article 62 and 63 of the constitution.
