The court directed the police not to use third degree methods and also not to handcuff him. The court also permitted lawyers of the MIM MLA to be present during the questioning. By evening police would return Akbar to the jail and resume questioning on Sunday morning. The same procedure would be followed every day during the police custody. On January 17, he would be produced before the court.
