The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday dismissed pleas to hear pending cases against former presidents Pervez Musharraf, Asif Ali Zardari and ex-PM Yousaf Raza Gillani as ineffective.
A three-member bench of the Lahore High Court comprising Chief Justice Muhammad Amir Bhatti, Justice Shujaat Ali Khan and Justice Ayesha A. Malik heard the case.
