Imran Khan had to be indicted today, for being found guilty in corrupt practices in Toshakhana reference.

PTI chairman had formed a four-lawyer team to fight the case on his behalf, that submitted their power of attorney in the court.

Additional Sessions Judge Justice Muhammad Zafar Iqbal heard the case in this regard, where ECP lawyer objected that why did Imran Khan not appear in the hearing yet.

If such exemption application continues to be filed, how will the indictment be applied; said the judge.

Justice Zafar replied that a date must be given when Imran Khan can appear before the court.

Imran Khan will appear only if his health allows to, he is following the instructions of the doctors; said Ali Bukhari.
