Islamabad, Sep 8 (ANI): Five more sacked Pakistani judges are likely to take oath on Tuesday, leaving deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry virtually isolated, sources have said.

They said two sacked judges of the Supreme Court (SC) - Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan and Justice Nasirul Mulk - had agreed to take fresh oaths, adding that a notification in this regard would likely be issued on Monday.

The source confirmed two sacked judges of the Sindh High Court - Chief Justice Sabihuddin Ahmad and Justice Sarmad Jalal Usmani - would also take oath as SC judges on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, deposed Lahore High Court judge Khawaja Muhammad Sharif has also expressed his willingness to be reappointed as a SC judge and is likely to take oath today (Monday), Geo News reported.

However, talking to the channel, Sharif dismissed reports about his reappointment as baseless, and said he had not been contacted for a fresh oath. (ANI)
