Islamabad: Pakistan's Supreme Court announced the formation of a commission headed by Chief Justice Nasirul Mulk to probe the alleged rigging in the 2013 general election, media reported Thursday.

The three-member commission was formed following the ordinance issued by President Mamnoon Hussain to proceed with the formation of a judicial commission, Dawn online reported.

It would investigate the allegations of poll rigging, a demand made by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) during the party's 126-day-long sit-in in Islamabad last year.

According to the statement issued by the apex court, Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan and Justice Amir Hani Muslim will be the other two members of the commission. The commission will hold its first meeting on April 9 at SC building.
