she noted that the case which started since 2018 ought to have concluded by now adding that despite being away for national assignments, she usually comes to the state to preside on cases, wondering why this particular one should drag.

The two counsels expressed their readiness and blamed the delay on national assignments of some witnesses especially the police personnel.
