The officer requested the physical custody of these accused citing it had also been detected that Aleema Khan was present on the spot.
The lawyer of the accused persons apprised the court that Aleema and Uzma were not named in the case and the statements be shown to them in which they had been declared guilty. To which the IO replied that all statements would be shown to the lawyer.
During proceedings, Aleema Khan reached the rostrum and requested for justice citing they were joining the proceedings daily. If justice can be ensured by sending them to jail, then do it, she added.
