A two-judge bench comprising Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Umar Atta Bandial heard a contempt of court case against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA and rejected his apology which he rendered unconditional.

I seek an unconditional apology and leave myself at the mercy of the court, Liaquat said during the hearing.

I have also apologised before, the TV host added.
