Anti-Terrorism Court Rawalpindi Judge Ijaz Asif adjourned proceedings in the case till April 30 after learning that the reference had been filed against him.

PTI leaders Zartaj Gul, Shaheryar Afridi, Raja Basharat, Ajmal Sabir and Seemabia Tahir appeared in the court.

Sheikh Rasheed and Shireen Mazari also appeared in the case.
