The Supreme Court (SC) on Friday adjourned the hearing of a contempt of court case against former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan till next week, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

A five-member larger bench of the SC, headed by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial, conducted hearing of the case and listened to the arguments of Imran Khan’s lawyer in response to the reply submitted by the government.

Salman Akram Raja, lawyer for Imran Khan, argued before the court that the government had attached old video clips in its reply which he had already dismantled.

Justice Mazahir Ali Akbar Naqvi questioned the government’s lawyer how the court could believe those video clips were true. “Has a forensic of these video clips been carried out?”

Lawyer Salman Butt said that the evidence had been produced before the court, adding that the court then could do whatever it perceived good.

The chief justice Umar Ata Bandial said when the larger bench started hearing, the long march had ended.

“Who said what? What call did one give? We have to consider all things [before reaching a decision],” he remarked.

The court then adjourned further hearing of the case till next week.
