The court has ordered the accused to submit bail bonds of Rs200,000 each.
The suspects include Shamsul Haq, Obaid, Ghulam Murtaza, Nasir, and others.
Haq stated, “we do not want the lion; it can be handed over to anyone.” The court has directed to provide a natural habitat for the turtle and the lion.
The court has also instructed to keep the lion and the turtle in Karachi Zoo until a decision is reached.
The court has requested the Wildlife authorities to submit the case report within 14 days.
