A three-member bench of apex court, headed by chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry heard the Nandipur project case on Monday.
During the course of proceeding, former law minister Babar Awan said that the report of Rahmat Hussain Jafri over this project was accurate, adding that Khawaja Asif will also have to resign since he was the minister.
