The Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan on Saturday delisted the hearing of a case concerning an alleged fake academic degree held by Lahore National Accountability Bureau Director General (NAB DG)

The registrar’s office of the apex court had earlier fixed the case for hearing on November 12, 2018 by a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar.

The court has also withdrawn its notices issued to the petitioner, journalist Asad Kharal. A new date for hearing of the case is yet to be issued by the registrar’s office.

“It is notified for information of all concerned Advocates/Advocate-on-Record and concerned parties that the following case fixed on 12.11.2018 in Final Cause List No.46/2018 before Bench No. I comprising Mr Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, HCJ, Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Sajjad Ali Shah is delisted,” the Supreme Court of Pakistan stated in a notice issued on Saturday.
