A local court in Islamabad has on Thursday declined the bail plea by Zahir Jaffer’s co-accused parents in the high profile Noor Mukadam murder case.

Additional District And Sessions Judge Muhammad Sohail Anjum reserved the verdict on the pleas by prime accused Zahir Jaffer’s parents.

Yesterday, the local court dealing with the murder case reserved its verdict on the plea for bail by Zakir Jaffer and Mrs Asmat Zakir, for their suspected complicity in the horrible murder of Noor Mukadam.

The plea was submitted by defense counsel of Jaffer’s parents who fought the case with arguments outlined from preceding cases and verdicts.

Note that the co-accused parents of prime accused Zahir Jaffer are imprisoned in Adyala Jail.

Noor Mukadam Murdered

The 27-year-old Noor Mukadam was murdered in the federal capital on July 20, in the city’s F-7 area, according to police.

She is the daughter of Shaukat Mukadam, who served as Pakistan’s ambassador to South Korea and Kazakhstan.

The Islamabad police arrested Zahir on the night of July 20th from his house where he killed her with a sharp instrument and beheaded her.

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.

The gruesome incident sparked a nationwide campaign seeking justice for her, with #JusticeforNoor had become a top trend on Twitter.

It should be noted that Jaffer had previously been deported from the United Kingdom on charges of assaulting a female.
