The Supreme Court of Pakistan reserved on Tuesday its verdict regarding the petition filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lawmaker Hanif Abbasi seeking disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan.

The trust deed establishes that not only Jahangir Tareen and his wife Amina Tareen are "discretionary lifetime beneficiaries" of the property in Newbury, Hampshire, but they also retain full control over the trust and its assets, therefore, making Tareen and wife owners of the asset. The honourable judges expressed disappointment over Tareen's written reply.

Responding over a comment issued by the chief justice during the hearing of the disqualification case in which he said the court is in no hurry to give its decision, Maryam sarcastically remarked: "Yes indeed there is no hurry".

Justice Nisar said the court had to decide whether PTI chief was an honest man and the verdict should not to be expected anytime soon.

During the hearing, Justice Saqib Nisar asked if hiding assets in the nomination paper was a mistake or deliberate lying.

Giving counter argument, Bukhari said there was no contradiction in any Imran Khan's answers provided his client and neither did he take any u-turn.

On this, Naeem Bukhari said that it might be a mistake that Imran failed to declare his income.

Earlier, it was observed by CJP that PTI Chairperson Imran Khan declared his London flat but not the offshore company.
