A three member bench of the Supreme Court has reserved judgment in contempt of court case against former Minister of State for Interior Talal Chaudhry.

The bench, headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmad, reserved the ruling after PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry’s lawyer Kamran Murtaza completed his arguments.

Murtaza contended that the prosecution lawyer failed to prove the allegations, adding that Chaudhry was not charge-sheeted as per the law.

“My client also deserves the leniency like the court granted to Tahir-ul-Qadri, Imran Khan, Saad Rafique, Nawaz Sharif and the cleric of Faizabad interchange protest,” he argued.

At which, Justice Faisal Arab said “what could be done if people don’t stop after courts condone their attitude.”

The prosecutor said Talal neither denied his statement nor he sought any apology.

The bench ordered that Talal Chaudhary should be present in the court room on the occasion of announcement of judgment in his case.
