“As a di­vi­sion bench headed by Jus­tice Ab­dul Sami Khan to­day held the court to an­nounce the ver­dict a govern­ment law of­fi­cer re­quested it (bench) to de­fer it as the deputy at­tor­ney gen­eral was not present in the court,” a court of­fi­cial told re­porters out­side the court­room. Ac­cept­ing the govern­ment’s re­quest, the bench de­ferred the an­nounce­ment of its ver­dict in Saeed’s house ar­rest case till July 3, the of­fi­cial said.

He gave no fur­ther rea­son for de­fer­ring the an­nounce­ment. “The bench will again sit on July 3 and an­nounce the ver­dict in Saeed’s case,” he added. PTI
