The Supreme Court on Tuesday deferred indictment of former law minister Babar Awan till Thursday, April 26 due to unavailability of his counsel in contempt of court case. A two-member bench of apex court comprising Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan and Justice Athar Saeed, resumed the hearing to frame contempt charge against Babar Awan for his media jibe against the judiciary. On April 10, Awan had tendered an apology to the court, especially to Justice Asif Saeed Khosa against whom he had launched a tirade by openly attacking him for being brother of Tariq Saeed Khosa. Tuesday’s proceeding was adjourned due to the absence of Awan’s attorney Ali Zafar from the court. Awan was present in the court but avoided giving statements in the absence of his attorney. He pleaded the Supreme Court to adjourn the case’s hearing.
