ISLAMABAD: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government and the Peshawar Development Authority (PDA) on Tuesday approached the Supreme Court of Pakistan against the decision of Peshawar High Court (PHC) directing the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to probe alleged irregularities in the Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.

The KP government filed a petition in the SC Registry Peshawar and the PDA filed an identical petition at the principal seat in Islamabad through its counsel Makhdoom Ali Shah, praying the top court to issue orders for stopping the FIA inquiry.

The petitions stated that the PHC decision was against the law as the high court had not fully examined the facts in the BRT project case.
