ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court (SC) rejected on Friday reports submitted by Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) and the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) regarding last year’s sit-in and protest at Islamabad Faizabad Interchange.

A two-member bench headed by Judge Musheer Alam and comprising Judge Qazi Faez Isa resumed hearing of the sit-in case.

During the hearing, the SC rejected the reports submitted by ISI, PEMRA and the ECP. The bench was informed by the Deputy Attorney General Sohail Mehmood that the attorney general of Pakistan was out of the city and requested the court to adjourn the hearing, local media reported.

The bench expressed its displeasure over the attorney’s absence and remarked that the hearing date had been fixed upon the attorney general’s wishes. Mehmood replied that the Chief Justice of Pakistan had ordered him to appear in Lahore.
