ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Wednesday urged the Supreme Court to summon Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif and others in storming of the court case as the contempt of court proceedings are still pending against him.

Speaking to media representatives outside the Parliament House, he said the Supreme Court of Pakistan in its detailed judgment issued on October 10, 2000 had ordered that contempt of court proceedings should be initiated against Nawaz Sharif and others, who were involved in invading the apex court building.

The court had also directed the concerned to complete the investigations and report within a period of four months but regrettably the investigations are still pending before Islamabad Police, he added.

He said that the contempt of court proceedings still exists against the former prime minister, adding that he should appear before the court and which should issue a verdict over the issue.

He said that the opposition should wait for the detailed judgment, adding that Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has the right to appeal.

The minister said that more evidences against the Sharifs are in the pipeline and he will soon reveal them before the media.
