While directing the anti-terrorism court, the SHC said that instead of hearing the suspects they should wrap up the case.

During the hearing, the legal branch informed the court that there are 29 witnesses in the case of which 10 have yet to record their statements.

On October 31, the police had presented before the anti-terrorism court Tehreek-e-Taliban member, Amjad Hussain, the prime accused in the murder case.

Khan was arrested from Karachi's Mangophir vicinity, on the directives of the Supreme Court issued on October 10.

According to the police, the accused confessed to Rahman's murder during the investigation.
