SC postpones hearing of two cases to be heard by CJP-led bench  


ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan has adjourned the hearing of Pakistan Steel Mills (PSM) case to be heard by a three-member bench of the apex court led by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Gulzar Ahmed, ARY NEWS reported.

The top court has postponed two cases to be heard by the apex court bench led by the chief justice.

The notice conveyed to the concerned lawyers and parties in the cases did not mention any reason for postponing the proceedings.

It is pertinent to mention here that earlier in the day, it was reported that the chief justice has tested negative for COVID-19 after he underwent a test.
