Kauseen Faisal Mufti, the junior lawyer’s plea to absolve Ishaq Dar from forthcoming hearings, was rejected by the court.
In the meantime, the Manager of Habib-Bank Ltd. Islamabad was presented as the 4th witness by NAB (National Accountability Bureau).
Khawaja Haris has begun his cross questioning of the witness.
