ISLAMABAD: Prosecutor Akram Sheikh and Ahmad Raza Kasuri counsel for former President Pervez Musharraf turned to exchanging bitter remarks when the latter said Akram Sheikh has changed his name as Nawaz Sharif during the course of hearing of high treason case in Special Court (SC).

Akhtar Shah one of counsels of Pervez Musharraf tried to say something and mentioned name of Akram Sheikh. This enraged Akram Sheikh and he said “ who is he and he is appearing from what side and in what case. Why is he mentioning his name. His name can not be mentioned”.

Ahmad Raza Kasuri said “ this is not a court and is theater of Shakespeare. Has Akram Sheikh changed his name and adopted the name of Nawaz Sharif”.

Akram Sheikh said Kasuri could not talk this way. The power to change his name rests with him and not with Kasuri, he added.

The court later intervened and seated both of them besides ordering Akhtar Shah to sit on the seat.
