Islamabad, July 16 (ANI): The Pakistan government has requested the Supreme Court to suspend the hearing of the detention of Jamaat-ud-Daawa (JuD) chief Hafeez Mohammad Saeed for a week.
It cited the unavailability of Attorney General, Sardar Latif Khosa as the reason for the request, the Dawn reports.
"We have filed an application with a request to the Supreme Court that the attorney general wants to plead the government's point of view himself because it is an important case having far reaching implications, but he is not available on Thursday when the case will be taken up," said the Deputy Attorney General, Shah Khawar.
However, the apex court declined to accept the application immediately. It is believed that it will ultimately accept the request.
The court directed the attorney general to inform the Punjab government and Hafiz Saeed's counsel about the proposal. (ANI)
