The counsel for the victim told the court that the victim was killed in Shahnawaz's house, adding that the accused would be free if Sara’s passport was not recovered within 14 days.
The court approved the police and prosecution's request seeking a three-day physical remand of the accused, he warned the investigators to ensure the investigation does not spoil the case.
