The court also issued notices to the prosecution on the request to exempt the accused from attendance till August 11.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman’s lawyer filed a plea for exempting the former prime minister from attendance on the grounds of filing an appeal against the sentence in the Islamabad High Court.

According to the prosecution, the PTI head is involved in cases of killing a man namely Zile Shah, and throwing petrol bombs at police.
