According to Dawn News, during the hearing, the defence and prosecuting lawyers presented their arguments over the application seeking to prevent the main accused former military ruler Pervez Musharraf from becoming a party in the case.
Akhtar Shah, belonging to the Pakistan Social Justice Party, argued that being a former president of the country, Musharraf could not be held responsible in the case.
According to the report, the court reserved its judgment on the application seeking to prevent Musharraf from becoming a party in the case and later, dismissed the said request.
The court accepted the request seeking a re-trial of the case and ordered the FIA to present a list of witnesses at the next hearing, the report said.
The hearing of the case was subsequently adjourned to October 22.
