ATC Judge Nazeer Ahmad Lango heard the case. The guarantors, who had ensured the court that Musharraf will be present in the hearing today, were also absent from the hearing on which the court expressed anger.

Defence lawyer Zeeshan Janjua presented the photostat copy of the medical certificate to the court and pleaded the bench to exempt his client from the hearing. Prosecutor Sohail Ahmad Rajput, in his arguments, said that Musharraf is being given a way to flee as the investigation report states that Musharraf is living in his house instead of the hospital.

Counsel of former Interior Minister Aftab Ahmad Sherpao told the court that his client could not appear in the hearing as he missed his flight to Quetta whereas former provincial home minister Shoaib Nosherwani was present in the hearing.

The court exempted Pervez Musharraf from the hearing today and adjourned the proceedings till 8th September. The court also ordered the guarantors to appear in the hearing along with the proper medical certificate.
