Karachi: The Sindh High Court (SHC) has dismissed a contempt of court petition against Rangers, after Dr Asim Hussain’s wife withdrew the plea.

SHC division bench comprising Justice Sajjad Ali Shah and Justice Junaid Ghaffar took up the contempt of court plea filed by Dr Zareen Hussain for hearing today. Barrister Abid Zubairi, counsel for Dr Zareen told the court that his client had asked him to withdraw the contempt petition, because medical checkup of Dr Asim Hussain had been carried out under the orders of the Supreme Court.

Earlier, the Rangers did not conduct a medical checkup of Dr Asim despite court orders, he said. The reason for which the petition had been filed has been fulfilled, he said.
