The prosecution requested the court to extend the judicial remand of the accused during the proceedings. The court was also told that the police had submitted challan (charge sheet) to the prosecution department.
At this, the court extended judicial remand of all the accused for another 10 days with a direction for producing them again on expiry of the remand term.
