IHC reserves its decision in chairman NADRA appointment case

ISLAMABAD (APP): The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday reserved its judgment in a petition challenging the appointment of Chairman National Database Regulatory Authority (NADRA) Usman Mubeen.

Justice Aamer Farooq of IHC conducted hearing on the petition and subsequently reserved the verdict after listening arguments from both sides.

Deputy Attorney General Raja Khalid adopted the stance before bench that age limit for the post of chairman NADRA was 55 years while Usman Mubeen was 38 year old.

The appointment was made keeping in view the experience and education criteria set for the post in accordance with the law, he said.
