ISLAMABAD - PPP leader Faisal Raza Abidi has been arrested after he appeared before the Supreme Court.

A two-judge bench headed by Justice Azmat Saeed Khosa heard a contempt case against Abidi earlier today.

During the hearing, the former senator requested the court to adjourn the case till his lawyer returned from Umrah or grant him time to hire a new counsel.

Approving Abidi's request, the bench adjourned the hearing till October 30 and issued a notice to the attorney general in this regard.

However, following his appearance when Abidi left the Supreme Court and was crossing Constitution Avenue to return to his residence, he was arrested by secretariat police.
