A district and sessions court in Islamabad has once again deferred the indictment of PTI leader Shahbaz Gill in a sedition case, reported 24newsHD TV channel.

Additional Sessions Judge Tahir Abbas heard the case on Friday. 

During its last hearing, the court had asked Gill to ensure his presence in the court and issued his bail-able arrest warrants.

Though, the PTI leader reached the Islamabad Kuchehry and his presence was marked in the court but he stayed in the ambulance wearing his oxygen mask on his face. 

Gill’s lawyer told the judge that his client was unable to come to the court as he could not take off his oxygen mask and he was sitting in the ambulance standing outside.

The court deferred Gill’s indictment till January 20.

However, the court issued bail-able warrants for Imad Yousuf against Rs50,000 surety bonds.
