A Rs10 billion defamation suit filed by Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif against Prime Minister Imran Khan was adjourned till December 7 as the additional sessions judge was on leave.

Additional Sessions Judge Aslam Panjutha was on leave therefore the hearing was adjourned by the court staff.

Earlier, Defence lawyer Babar Awan had filed the application in the defamation suit as a last resort as the court had earlier given last and final opportunity to file written arguments in the main suit. He also requested to provide record of cases against Shehbaz Sharif who had claimed Rs10 billion in damages from Khan under sections 4 and 9 of the Defamation Ordinance 2002 for allegedly lying and defaming his reputation.
