According to details, Karachi Human RightsSociety General Secretary Amir Saeed, through his counsel Malik Naeem, has told the court that the Supreme Court of Pakistan had removed Muhammad Ali Ghulam Muhammad as SECP chairman in 2013, whereas Zafar Abdullah and Akif Saeed have also completed their tenure. So they are not eligible to hold the post. The petitioner requested the court to stop such appointments.
