The verdict of the panel will be measured as the court’s judgment and will be obligatory upon every party. The court has ordered the petitioners and government to give their ToR (Terms of Reference) for the probe panel.

Earlier than its recess till Thursday, the court in addition expressed keenness to hold inquiries on every day basis. Though, the court did not forbid the PTI protest in Islamabad.
