KARACHI (92 News) - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Khurram Sher Zaman was barred from casting his vote for the Senate polls at the Sindh Assembly after a mobile phone was seized from his possession.

According to the reports, chaos erupted in the Sindh Assembly after the MPA was found carrying his cell phone in violation of the ECP rules.

After PPP members' protest, Returning Officer (RO) stopped Khurram Sherzaman from casting his vote and took back the ballot papers and mobile phone.

The matter is being investigated. Now, the Returning Officer will decide the casting of Khurram Sherzaman's vote.

The Sindh government’s spokesperson Murtaza Wahab said an electronic device was recovered from the PTI lawmaker’s possession when he was going to cast his ballot. Subsequently, the presiding officer barred him from casting his vote.
