ISLAMABAD – The Islamabad High Court has asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to submit a reply in his defamation suit against PML-N leader Khawaja Asif.

PML-N stalwart challenged the legality of the statement of Prime Minister Imran Khan recorded through a video link in a defamation suit about misappropriation of funds of Shaukat Khanam Memorial Trust (SKMT).

Reports in local media said a single bench comprising Chief Justice Athar Minallah took up the petition. The counsel for Asif told the court that the sessions judge had barred the defendant from cross-examining the premier.

CJ Athar Minallah then inquired for how long this case of defamation was lingering in the court? The counsel confessed that the delay was from both sides.
