The arrest came hours after the accused was presented before a court. The murder and beheading of Noor Mukadam has sparked nationwide outrage in Pakistan, with thousands of people calling on the authorities to take the case to a legitimate end.
The post-mortem report of the Noor Mukadam was released on Friday, stating that she was beheaded after being murdered in Islamabad.
As per sources, the accused had planned the crime and had taken some of his friends into confidence regarding the plan a few days before the incident.
The accused called Noor at this residence on July 20th and told her to switch her phone off. When her parents couldn’t contact her, they started questioning her friends about her location.
When some of Noor’s friends went to Jaffer’s residence to inquire about the deceased, he denied seeing her. Upon this, Noor’s friends had a fight with Jaffer, sources told the police.
After brutally murdering Noor, the accused tried fleeing to the United States but was arrested on time.
It should be noted that Jaffer had previously been deported from the United Kingdom on charges of assaulting a female.
“Not a person with mental disability”
Earlier, Noor Mukadam’s father addressed a press conference and thanked the prime minister, Shahbaz Gill, and Mazari for taking a personal interest in the case.
“This is not a case where the suspect escaped. He was caught and caught with a weapon,” Mukadam said.
He said that Jaffer is “not a person with a mental disability”.
“If such a person was employed as the director of a company, then his parents, too, must be made part of the investigation,” Mukadam had demanded.
“My daughter was a very sweet and kind-hearted girl. Our family has been crying badly since [her murder],” he said.
Mukadam said that he has served the country as an ambassador and only seeks justice.
“This is a clear-cut case. The killer is standing right before us,” he said.
The former diplomat said that the murder was “witnessed by the gatekeeper” of the house.
