Babar Awan stated that the case will bring a lot of details to light adding that Imran Khan had to take it to the streets to protest against the blatant injustice. Both the lawyers also exchanged verbal blows during the argument.

Judge Nazir Ahmad remarked that court will pass the judgment without any pressure. Court ordered Imran Khan to submit response pertaining to the defamation suit in the next hearing and directed Iftikhar Chaudry’s lawyer to provide rationale of the objections pointed at Babar Awan.

Case hearing was adjourned till February 14.
