Noor Muqaddam’s father says satisfied with probe into daughter’s murder case
Court sends Zahir Jaffar, six other suspects on 14-day judicial remand
Shaukat Muqaddam, Pakistan’s ex-envoy and father of Noor Muqaddam, who was slain by her boyfriend Zahir Jaffar last month, said on Monday he was satisfied with the progress made in his daughter’s murder case so far, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
In an informal chat with journalists at District and Sessions Court in Islamabad, he said what’s the use of matching the fingerprints or finding the weapon used in the murder when the suspect had himself confessed to having committed the crime.
Later, the court while extending the judicial remand of Zahir Jaffar and six Therapy Works staffers for another 14 days, directed the police to produce them in the court on August 30.
Earlier, Zahir was brought to the ‘Bukhshi Khana’ rather than to the court. And from there he was taken straight back to the Adiala Jail.
Meanwhile, District and Sessions Court accepted the application filed for conducting the DNA test of two servants of Zahir, namely Iftikhar and Jameel.
