Additional Sessions Judge Tajamul Shahzad conducted the proceedings on the petition filed by Safdar as he feared that he might be arrested in the case filed against him. On expiry of his interim bail, Safdar appeared before the court along with his lawyers. In the case, the petitioner is accused of scuffling with policemen when his wife, Maryam Nawaz, was produced before an accountability court.
