A court in Islamabad on Tuesday accepted the bail applications filed by six employees of Therapy Works, including its owner Zahir Zahoor, in former Pakistan’s envoy’s daughter Noor Mukadam murder case, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Later, in its written verdict, the District and Sessions Court says that prima facie Therapy Works owner as well as employees had no role in Noor’s murder, and the question of whether the suspects had tried to erase proofs of the incident will be answered during the trial.

It further says that both the owner and employees were not present at the time of former Pakistan’s envoy’s daughter murder.

Furthermore, the record of the crime tells that main suspect in the case Zahir Jafar had seriously wounded one of the employees Amjad. “Therefore, it cannot be assumed that the Therapy Works team had gone to the crime scene to erase proofs. And whether the team had prior knowledge of the murder will only be established during the trial,” reads the verdict.

“Therefore, the suspect’s bails are accepted in lieu of surety bonds of Rs0.5 million each,” the verdict concludes.

Noor Mukadam, daughter of ex-Pakistan’s envoy Shaukat Mukadam, had been killed by her boyfriend Zahir in Islamabad on July 20th when the latter refused to marry him.
