islamabad - Mian Khurram Rasool, former media coordinator of ex-prime minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani, has approached the Islamabad High Court (IHC) for his acquittal from a corruption case.

A division bench of IHC comprising Justice Noor-ul-Haq N Qureshi and Justice Athar Minallah will today (Monday) hear Khurram Rasool’s petition along with the objections raised by the registrar office of the court. The registrar office has raised objections over his petition, mentioning that he had not attached the reference of National Accountability Bureau with his petition.

It was August 2012 when the National Accountability Bureau had filed a corruption reference against Khurrram alleging that he and his brother Shahid Mehmood embezzled millions of rupees by collecting money from people for the purpose of business.
