During hearing, three co-accused including president National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) Saeed Ahmed, Naeem Mehmood and Mansoor Raza appeared before the court.

The junior counsel for the accused requested the court to fix another date for indictment of the accused as senior counsel Hashmat Habib was unable to attend the proceeding.
