SUNDAY TIMES RAWALPINDI:Accountability Judge Arshad Malik is hearing the case in Rawalpindi as the PPP leaders are present inside the courtroom.

Special security arrangements have been made to avoid any untoward incident on the occasion of the appearance of the PPP leaders in the court. More than 1,500 security personnel, including those from Rangers, special branch and traffic, will be deployed around the court premises.

No unauthorised person would be allowed to enter the court during the hearing.

Such security arrangements have been made in light of skirmishes between the police and PPP workers at the NAB’s old headquarters in Rawalpindi where the former president and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had appeared to record their statement last month.
