During the proceedings headed by Justice Mohammad Bashir, defence lawyer Amjad Pervez submitted a plea seeking exemption of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz from court appearance for seven days as they are in London to visit ailing Begum Kulsoom.
The court has rejected their plea and and allowed to make NAB director general as witness.
All the rallies of PML-N have also been postponed. Nawaz and Maryam were to address gatherings in Lala Musa on April 20, Sahiwal on April 21and Mansehra on April 22. The new dates for the rallies will be announced later.
Maryam Nawaz had tweeted that they will be returning back before next proceedings if their request not granted.
