In order to hear appeals involving the disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case, the Lahore High Court (LHC) convened a full bench on Friday.
According to information, Justices Abid Aziz Sheikh and Sajid Mehmood Sethi would join Chief Justice Muhammad Ameer Bhatti of the Lahore High Court (LHC) to form a three-person full bench.

On January 9, the case will be heard by a three-person bench led by LHC Chief Justice Muhammad Ameer Bhatti.
