The accused, including Zahir, his parents, their house hold staff, Therapy Work CEO Tahir Zahoor and other workers of the psychotherapy centre attended the trial of the case.

Zahir pleaded the judge to allow him to come to witness stand and speak. He also asked the court to pardon him.

Judge Rabbani told Zahir he would listen to him during the trial and currently there was no need for his comments.

The judge asked all accused to make ensure their presence on October 14.
