Staff Reporter


Additional Attorney General Tariq Mehmood Khokhar on Tuesday denied reports of his resignation, saying that he had no intentions to quit his post.
A day earlier, Khokhar had filed a petition in the Islamabad High Court (IHC), asking to set aside a special court’s decision to reserve its judgement in a high treason case against former military chief Pervez Musharraf.
“I appeared in a court to represent the government [but] because of other commitments could not argue the interior ministry’s petition in the treason case,” he told media when contacted.
Prosecutor Sajid Ilyas Bhatti appeared in Khokhar’s place on Tuesday.
