Noor Mukadam’s father challenges bails granted to six suspects
In an important development in ex-Pakistan’s envoy’s daughter Noor Muqaddam murder case, a petition was filed in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday, seeking cancellation of bails granted to five Therapy Works employees and its owner, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
In the petition filed by Shaukat Muqaddam, father of Noor Muqaddam, he challenged the decision given by additional session judge.
It is argued in the petition that the court while granting bails to the six suspects had ignored the rules set by the Supreme Court (SC) since all of them were present at the time of commission of the crime. “Therapy Works employees and owner had also concealed from the court the facts that had led to the cancellation of bails granted to Zakir Jafar and Asmat Adamji, parents of Zahir Jafar, the main suspect in the case. Furthermore, they are also threatening the petitioner. And if allowed to remain at large, they could cause irreparable loss to the plaintiff. Therefore, it is prayed to the court that the verdict given by the additional session judge be declared null and void and bails granted to the six suspects be cancelled so that justice could be done in the murder case,” reads the petition.
It is further stated in the petition that the facts regarding injuries caused to one of Therapy Works’ employees, Amjad, by the main suspect Zahir were also hushed up.
