Supreme Court has adjourned the hearing of ongoing contempt case against Talal Chaudhry for an indefinite period on Monday after the bench hearing the case was dissolved. 

The three-member bench was dissolved because the head bench, Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, will retire today.

However, Justice Ejaz told that the interior minister for State will be given a complete chance to present his defence. 

On May 4, the minister’s counsel, Kamran Murtaza, had requested the court to adjourn the hearing until today, which was approved.

Talal Chaudry was held in contempt of court after he made some anti-judiciary remarks at a party rally earlier this year. Chaudry has been indicted in the case and has pleaded not guilty to the charges. 

The next hearing of the case will now be held after the chief justice forms a new bench.
