The new bench includes Justice Jahangir, Justice Mazahir Ali Akbar and Justice Atir Mahmoud.

Earlier, a full bench constituted by the Lahore High Court broke as Justice Shahid Mubeen recused himself from hearing the contempt petitions filed against the Sharif family.

Chief Justice of LHC Mohammad Yawar Ali Khan had formed a new bench, headed by Justice Mazahir Ali Akbar Naqvi, after Justice Shahid Bilal Hassan from the earlier bench was transferred to Multan for a case.
