The court while re-issuing the arrest warrant of the accused directed them to appear before the court on next hearing on December 3, 2016.

The court provided copies of the reference to the accused. Zulfiqar Ali Shalwani and Mansoor Ahmed and others are co-accused in the Rs5 billion corruption case.
