ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court (SC) has ordered for verification of thumb impression of voters  in the constituency of Khawaja Asif, defence minister  NA-110 Sialkot and has sought report thereof from NADRA within 3 months.

The court also ordered that the expenses of the verification of thumb impression would be borne by Usman Dar from PTI.
