Khattak terms SC decision victory of PTI

Instead of the protest, Khan on Tuesday said he would hold a "celebratory" rally, following a decision by the Supreme Court to pursue a case linked to Sharif. The PTI said it would challenge the court's order in the apex court.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday suddenly called off a planned "lockdown" of Islamabad after the Supreme Court paved the way for an investigation into allegations of corruption against the prime minister s family.

In late October, media reported that the Pakistani government banned all political meetings and protests in the capital, Islamabad, ahead of the November 2 planned opposition march.

In a reply to another tweet, he said that people have given them to mandate to work for the sake of the country, and not to bring a show of power.

It should be mentioned here that Khattak was leading a group of PTI workers to Islamabad on Monday night when violent confrontation with police left around eight police mobiles burning while containers were cleared using a crane.

Relief May Be on the Way for Kids with Peanut Allergies
Researchers have found that delivering small doses of peanut protein using a skin patch can help children with peanut allergies. Results from the first year of the trial were recently published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

One worker died from respiratory failure and the other from wounds suffered in police clashes, said Anila Khawaja, a spokeswoman for PTI, Pakistan's second-largest opposition party. He also expressed his ire over the decision of the authorities to put him under house arrest.

The premier has faced mounting public pressure to step down since some of his relatives were named as holders of offshore bank accounts in leaked financial documents from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca.

Three of Mr. Sharif's four children are said to be owners of offshore companies, according to the Panama Papers.

In a second tweet, she said that it was the Prime Minister who had requested the Supreme Court to set up a judicial commission.

Holding offshore companies is not illegal in Pakistan, but Khan has implied that the money and London apartments held by the companies, amounting to millions of dollars, were gained by corrupt means.
