The district and sessions court rejected their petition asking for an extension of their bail too.

They challenged the inclusion of Section 302 (Murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code in the FIR too.

The case's challan was submitted to the court on May 3. Doctors and hospital staff are among 25 witnesses named in the challan.
