Prime Minister Imran Khan has directed the Inspector General of Police for Islamabad Qazi Jameel-ur-Rehman “not to make any concessions” while investigating the murder of Noor Mukadam, who is the daughter of former Pakistani diplomat Shaukat Mukadam.

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill shared this update on Friday.

According to the Police, Noor, 27, was brutally murdered in Islamabad on Tuesday, in the city’s F-7 area.

The frightening episode has triggered a national movement pursuing justice for her, with #JusticeforNoor becoming a top trend on Twitter.

Noor’s father Shaukat Mukadam served as Pakistan’s ambassador to South Korea and Kazakhstan.

Whereas, Zahir Zakir Jaffer, the son of a Karachi-based business tycoon, has been detained and booked for ostensibly murdering the young woman.

Gill further stated that the PM of Pakistan is “personally monitoring” the case and has summoned the IGP for a report.

“The prime minister has ordered that justice be served to Noor Mukadam’s family,” the secretary said.

“We all have daughters. I would like to ask the Opposition to stand united with us on this front,” he further added.

He requested the courts to “meet all the requirements of the law” and for the agencies to probe the crime “on merit”.

On the contrary, Gill also talked about Noor’s mother, whom he mentioned as saying that her daughter was a “soft-hearted girl” who had been “brutally tortured”.

He said that had the police been timely notified of the killer’s actions, “then perhaps her life could have been saved”.

The premier’s aide said, “the facts of the case will be shared with the nation”.

He said that “Noor can never be brought back, but what can be done is serve justice”.

Gill said that in addition to the PM being personally devoted to the conclusion of the investigation, Minister for Interior Shaikh Rasheed and Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari are also in touch with the police and seeking to keep informed off and on.

“We will not be sharing any details until the police complete their investigation,” he said.

“Please give some time to the police to complete their probe. Rest assured, justice will be done,” the aide said.
