ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan has decided to indict Nehal Hashmi for committing contempt of court on 26 March. Hearing case against Nehal Hashmi for abusing the judges immediately after serving one month sentence for the same crime, the apex court had served him contempt notice.
In response to the notice, Nehal Hashmi told the court that whatever he had said in the video, had been the words used by prisoners in the jail as he never talks in high voice with anyone. He said that he had been mentally upset and only repeated what he had heard in the prison. On February 28, disgraced Senator Nehal Hashmi was released from Adiala Jail after he completed his incarceration sentence of a month in contempt of court case.
