Islamabad Accountability Court-I Judge Muhammad Bashir once again requested leave till his retirement on March 14 citing medical grounds on Saturday.
The judge submitted the leave application to the Islamabad High Court. The high court acknowledged the receipt of the request.
Judge Bashir recently gave the verdict of the Toshakhana case against Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi for misusing the official gifts repository.
Previously, on January 20 Justice Bashir had applied for medical leave until his retirement on March 14, citing deteriorating health. In the letter sent to the IHC and the Ministry of Law and Justice, the judge stated that due to his deteriorating health, he could not perform his duties.
However, the Ministry of Law and Justice did not approve his request. Following the denial, the judge withdrew his application, stating that he was now well and could perform his duties.
