Noor Mukadam’s killer will not be able to walk-away: Imran Khan

Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he was keeping a close eye on the much-hyped Noor Mukaddam’s case from day one and the accused would not be able to walk away from the case, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Prime Minister Imran Khan said, “Noor Muqaddam case is a horrific case and an accused cannot escape in this case no matter how powerful he would be.”

 “I am also watching the case of the daughter of the Afghan ambassador, just like my own daughter,” he added.

Earlier, a District and Sessions Court in Islamabad on Friday took up or hearing the bail applications of parents of Zahir Zakir Jafar, the main suspect in the murder case of Noor Muqaddam, daughter of ex-Pakistan’s envoy, while Zahir Jafar was taken to Lahore in connection with the investigation.

The court adjourned the hearing of bail applications of suspects in the Noor Muqaddam case till August 4.

Asad Jamal Advocate represented Asmat Adamjee, Zahir’s mother. When the judge inquired as to where the investigation officer (IO) in the case was, counsel for the state Sajid Cheema replied that the IO had gone to Lahore to get the forensic test of video of the incident.

Shaukat Ali Muqaddam, father of the victim girl, also a petitioner in the case, told the court that he was yet to hire a lawyer; therefore he was given time till Monday (August 2).

Suspects’ lawyers prayed to the court to defer the hearing till tomorrow (Saturday, July 31). Counsel for the state, Cheema said that the IO in the case was in Lahore, and he had with him a file of the case.

Asad Jamal Advocate, representing the mother of the main suspect in the case, said that his client Asmat Adam Ji was put in jail without any solid reason.

Meanwhile, Islamabad police have reached Lahore with main suspect Zahir Zakir Jafar for the forensic test of the video recovered from the crime scene. Zahir will also be made to go through the polygraphic test at the forensic laboratory so that truth could be shifted from the falsehood. The suspect will also be asked questions regarding the murder of Noor Muqaddam.
