ISLAMABAD: A larger bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) will hear the contempt of court case against former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan at 2:30pm today (Wednesday).
A five-member bench comprising IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah, Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani, Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb, Justice Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri, and Justice Babar Sattar will hear the case.
Ahead of the hearing, police set security on high alert around the IHC and the path from the entry gate to the courtroom was closed with a tent.
The authorities also issued special passes for journalists and lawyers, while a bomb disposal squad (BDS) cleared the courtroom.
A day earlier, Khan had petitioned the high court praying that the terrorism case against him be quashed and offered to take back his words against a district and sessions judge.
