“Neither my client committed the act nor was he present at the incident site,” adding that he was also not included in the FIR.

The lawyer said that the trial court rejected his client’s bail plea even after notifying them that he was a university student and could not flee anywhere.

“The IHC should grant bail to him while considering the argument,” he added as the court adjourned the hearing for another two weeks.

Earlier in July, a district and sessions court in Islamabad ordered the police to submit a challan against Usman Mirza and his other partners until September 10.

The court extended the remand of four suspects, including Usman Mirza, Idris Qayyum Butt, Farhan, and Atta ur Rehman, after their 14-day remand ended.

While directing the police to submit challan in the case, the court asked to present them before the court on August 13 and 27.

The accused have been sent to Adiala Jail until September 10.
