KARACHI: PTI MNA Aslam Khan flouted the regulations in place by holding a large gathering of people at his residence.

As per the government’s instructions, a complete ban on wedding functions and all sorts of gatherings have been imposed, as the country undergoes a fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Speaking to media, Aslam Khan said he hosted his daughter’s Walima at his residence. “I invited only my family and close friends for the function,” he said.
The PTI MNA said he had not hosted a “huge gathering” in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
