Suspended PML-N leader Nehal Hashmi on Tuesday withdrew his resignation from the Senate after a meeting with chairman Raza Rabbani. Hashmi had submitted his resignation from the Senate after a video surfaced last week in which he lashed out at "those investigating" Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's family.

In the video, the senator had warned that those conducting the investigation will be "taken to task" for grilling the premier's family. Subsequently, his party membership was suspended by the PML-N.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar also took suo motu notice of Hashmi's remarks and ordered to open a contempt of court case against Hashmi.

On Sunday, police had registered a case against Nehal Hashmi over charges of using threatening language against the judiciary, public servants and disrupting judicial proceedings.

Hashmi has submitted a written application seeking withdrawal of his resignation. Sources said that Rabbani later discussed the legal aspects of the matter with Federal Law Minister Zahid Hamid in his chamber, along with Senator Pervaiz Rashid and Mushahidullah Khan.

Mushahidullah, speaking to reporters outside Rabbani's chambers, said he opposed Hashmi's decision to withdraw his resignation. He added that the former PML-N leader should adhere to the party's disciplinary actions. Rashid told reporters they had urged the Senate chairman to accept Hashmi's resignation.
