The Peshawar High Court (PHC) Tuesday dismissed a petition of former National Assembly speaker Asad Qaiser challenging an inquiry of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) against him in prohibited funding case.

A PHC bench, headed by Justice Lal Jan, delivered the brief verdict.

The court also ordered the FIA to continue its inquiry.

Lawyer for Asad Qaiser said that they would approach the Supreme Court against the decision of the PHC.
