The decision was made during a hearing presided by Accountability Court Judge Nasir Javed Rana at Adiala Jail regarding the 190 million-pound scam reference.Further, in an official post on X, PTI said, “The jail authorities, under the control of the illegitimate regime, have repeatedly overruled court orders.”In addition to the statement, PTI stated, “What remains to be seen is whether they will comply with the court orders this time or not.”

Moreover, during the hearing, Judge Rana ordered an endoscopy for Bushra Bibi, to be supervised by Dr Asim Younus of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital along with a government doctor, as per The Express Tribune.

Additionally, the judge instructed the presentation of six witnesses related to the reference at the next hearing. During the proceedings, Judge Nasir Javed Rana ordered the removal of wooden barriers from the courtroom. Following an hour-long break, the jail authorities removed all additional sheets.
