FIA prosecutor said that Shah made provocative tweets which are still being retweeted. On the other hand, Shah’s lawyer said his client has been in jail for five months and questioned whether she could still be tweeting from the jail.

The defendant’s counsel also pleaded to the court that he is otherwise engaged in a contempt petition in the Lahore High Court (LHC) and required time. The court granted some time on Shah’s lawyer’s demand. – INP
