Additional AG Manoor Iqbal Dogal appeared in the court, and the court questioned the reasons for the federal government’s reluctance to engage with the court.

In response, the Additional AG requested some time to submit written arguments.

However, the court expressed its concern, noting that the matter had been pending for two months, and a week should have been sufficient to decide on it.

The court accepted the plea and adjourned the hearing of the case until the following week, while preventing the arrest of PTI leaders till the next hearing.
