Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's party today filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking the disqualification of former president and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chief Asif Ali Zardari.
 
Geo TV reported that Khurram Sher Zaman, a Member of Sindh Assembly from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, filed the disqualification petition against 63-year-old Zardari in the apex court.

Zardari, the husband of assassinated former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, was elected to parliament from the southern Sindh province in the elections in July last.

On December 20, Zaman had filed a reference in the Election Commission of Pakistan seeking the disqualification of the former president for allegedly concealing his New York apartment in his tax returns. However, earlier this month, Zaman withdrew the disqualification reference stating that he would move the apex court against Zardari.

Zardari served as the 11th President of Pakistan from 2008 to 2013.
