The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday adjourned hearing of Asghar Khan Case regarding misuse of public money for political purposes till 4th June.
According to a private TV channel, the SC directed the authorities to produce a notification pertaining to the foundation of a political wing of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) during Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s government.
During the hearing, Asghar Khan’s counsel Salman Akram Raja told the court that the government had not provided him with the commission’s report on Habib Bank.
Raja said he had also contacted Interior Minister Rehman Malik in this regard but was not provided with the requisite report.
Chief Justice Iftikhar said that despite being directed several times, the government had failed to provide reports of the two commissions on the Habib Bank and the now defunct Mehran Bank.
Later into the hearing, Secretary Law Yasmin Abbasi submitted the interim Habib Bank inquiry report before the court.
