ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court hearing for a show cause notice issued to Bahria Town chief Malik Riaz Hussain over a controversial press briefing resumed on Thursday.
Riaz had already requested the court to provide him with stringent security on the occasion of his court appearance.
In the request submitted to the Supreme Court, the real state tycoon said that his life was in danger and that he was receiving threats, hence he required strict security measures.
Some lawyers had hurled threats at Malik Riaz during one of his court appearance and others had mistreated him on another occasion, according to Riaz.
He added that a media campaign was being run to incite the masses against him.
Earlier, Chief Justice Pakistan Iftikhar Chaudhry had taken a suo moto notice against his own son Arsalan Iftikhar and real state tycoon Malik Riaz, following allegations leveled against them on a private news channel.
