The accused called a doctor to treat the victim
As per reports, when the accused saw the victim’s health deteriorating, they called a doctor to treat her, claiming she was their family member. The doctor got suspicious and refused to treat her in the absence of a guardian. The doctor in a statement said that Sahil came to call him at around 5 PM. He took him to Shahid’s grocery shop. When he reached there, they told him to treat the victim, claiming she was their relative. He denied and said he wouldn’t treat her in the absence of an elder or a woman. “They told me to go back to my clinic and said they would call the secretary and get the victim to my clinic. I don’t know where they went after that, he added.
