ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday declared Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) lawmaker in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Yousaf Ayub, disqualified in the fake degree case.

The Election Tribunal had declared Ayub ineligible over his fake degree. In response, the PTI’s MPA had filed a plea in the Supreme Court against the decision of tribunal.
