Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan said he regrets his comments at a rally about a female judge and sought the dismissal of contempt of court proceedings against him.

Khan “takes this opportunity to express his deep regrets over his unintentional utterances during the course of his speech at a rally,” said the written response sent to the court by his lawyer on Wednesday. Khan sought the dismissal of the case by the court that is scheduled to meet on September 8.
