ISLAMABAD (APP) - A local court of Islamabad on Wednesday fixed Toshakhana criminal case for hearing tomorrow and also served notice to the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) chairman for appearance in personal capacity.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Hamayun Dilawar will take up the case for hearing on Thursday.

Previously, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had directed the trial court to re-decide the maintainability of the Toshakhana case within seven days after hearing the PTI chairman.

The PTI chairman had challenged the admissibility of the Toshakhana case before the IHC which set aside the verdict of the trial court. The IHC bench had stated that the trial court had dismissed the petition of former prime minister on weak grounds.

The bench asked the lower court to consider the petition of the PTI chairman as pending.
