Islamabad High Court rejected the petition filed against General
Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani’s extension on Monday. The case was heard by IHC’s
Chief Justice Iqbal Hameed-ur-Rehman.
Justice Iqbal Hameed-ur-Rehman rejected the petition filed by Colonel
(Retired) Inam-ur-Rehman. Colonel (Rtd) Inam-ur-Rehman held the stance
that Ashfaq Kayani’s extension was unconstitutional as he was 60 years
old and not further extension should be granted to him as it would be
against the constitution.
During the hearing, Justice Iqbal forwarded his remarks stating that
issues pertaining to Army employees can not be brought within the
civilian Courts under Article 199 (3) and the case was finally dismissed
with the rejection of the petition.
