During investigation, investigating agency has recorded statement of eye witnesses.
Adv Mir Nagman Ali apprearing for the accused pointed out to the court that, though complainant has named Sajid as assailant but other 4 eyewitnesses have not attributed assault to Sajid, In Fact they have attributed that, Sajid has instigated Shahrukh and Sohail to commit murder of deceased.
There are material contradiction in the statements of eyewitnesses and complainant. It is doubtful whether Sajid had really partiipated in the assault.
