ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court on Monday admitting the Government appeal for postponing the NRO hearing for some time has granted an extension till Oct 13 and ordered the government to continue the implementation of court verdict in NRO cases.

On behalf of the Government of Pakistan, the Attorney General (AG), Maulvi Anwar-ul-Haque on Monday submitted an appeal to the Supreme Court (SC) to postpone the hearing of NRO for some time.

Another member of the bench, Justice Ramday, said that wherever judges try to raise their heads, they are immediately showered with hammers.
