At the start of the hearing, the CJP asked how the FIR given by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) could be ignored. The FIA counsel informed the court that Peshawar High Court had declared that the investigation for the case had not been completed.

On this, the CJP remarked that review of the appeal had been assigned and accepted by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa so it would be appropriate that the case is heard by him.
