Adjourning the hearing of the case of Khan, who turned
up at the court along with associate Sayeed Ahmed, to January
21, the court directed the accused to appear before the
investigating police officers on Wednesday and Thursday for

the crime branch for the first time earlier today. He had been

sent to him repeatedly.

personal problems, promised to cooperate with the police
henceforth in connection with the case.
