A court in federal capital will indict PTI leader Shahbaz Gill on March 22, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Additional District and Sessions Judge Tahir Abbas Sipra also rejected plea of the PTI leader to defer his indictment.
Shahbaz Gill had requested the court to defer his indictment till the decision of Arshad Sharif’s murder case.
In previous hearing, the court had postponed the indictment of Mr Gill till March 11 after granting him a one-time exemption from appearance on medical grounds on a request filed by his legal team.
The defence lawyer had also prayed the court to stay the proceeding until the verdict of the top court in Arshad Sharif murder case.
He was arrested in August last on the charges of sedition and inciting the public against the state institutions. He was later released on bail by the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
