ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned hearing of a case pertaining to the audit of Defence Housing Authority (DHA) Karachi for two weeks. A three-member SC bench headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmed and comprising Justice Qazi Faez Isa and Justice Ijaz Ul Ahsan heard the case. During the course of proceedings, the bench expressed annoyance for non-compliance of the court's order to carry out the DHA's audit. Justice Qazi Isa observed that the court had ordered an audit of the DHA and its management could be held in contempt of court for not non-compliance. Justice Guulzar remarked as to why the judiciary had to do everything and pass the orders. The DHA's counsel requested the court for some time to prepare his client's case. Subsequently, the case was adjourned for two weeks.
