A court in Islamabad on Monday extended the judicial remand of parents of main suspect in the murder case of Noor Muqaddam, daughter of ex-Pakistan’s envoy, till August 23, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Earlier, Zakir Jaffer and Asmat Adamjee, parents of main suspect in the case Zahir Jaffer, were brought to Islamabad Katchehry’s Bukhshi Khana, but were not produced in the District and Sessions Court.

Judicial Magistrate Naseeruddin marked the suspects present through ‘Robkar’.

And later, police took both of them back to Adiala Jail.

The Islamabad police on July 25, 2021, had arrested parents of Noor Muqaddam’s killer.

Zahir Zakir’s father Zakir Jaffer and mother Asmat Adamjee were taken into custody by the police in the federal capital late on Saturday night. Earlier, the police also arrested Zahir Zakir’s domestic helpers Iftikhar and Jamil for investigation.

The arrests of Zakir Jaffer and Asmat Adamjee were made after a detailed statement by Noor Muqaddam’s father, Shaukat Muqaddam.

The police produced both parents before a duty magistrate on Sunday, who handed them and their two servants to police on physical remand for two days.

The police, however, did not rule out more arrests linked to Noor’s murder. They said the police are trying to piece together all the direct or indirect evidence linked to this murder.

The police said Zakir Jaffer, Asmat Adamjee, servants Iftikhar and Jameel were arrested on charges of hiding facts and assistance in crime.
