    Syed Fayyaz stated that the deceased had not returned and his family had received a call from accused persons demanding a ransom of Rs10 million for his release. He added that the caller had threatened that they should not disclose it to anyone otherwise Dr Shahzad would be killed.He stated that initially the FIR was registered under section 365-A of Pakistan Penal Code on Dec 20, 2015. He added that Ahmad Ali was arrested on Dec 21, 2015, and on his pointation the body of Dr Shahzad was recovered near Risalpur.
    The counsel argued that the prime accused, Ahmad Ali, had also confessed to his guilt before a magistrate and had stated that he and Dr Anwer had kidnapped the deceased for ransom.
