The hearing of the case was held before a two-member bench. The K-E lawyer, Abid Zubairi, claimed that KMC is a defaulter with an outstanding amount of Rs230 million.

Zubairi said that a stay order was taken without paying K-Electric its dues. Therefore, it was requested that the stay order be revoked.
After listening to the argument, the court revoked the stay order.
