Parents Murderer Noor Mukadam Approach Supreme Court
Researcher at Pakistan Team.
The parents of Zahir Jaffer, the prime suspect in the murder of Noor Mukadam, reached the Supreme Court to challenge the decision made by the High Court of Islamabad on the 29th of September, 2021. This decision made by the High Court of Islamabad concerned the request of a bail plea for Zahir Jaffer, which the HCI rejected.
On the 21st of July 2021, Noor Mukadam, the daughter of diplomat Shaukat Makudam, was brutally beaten and beheaded by a childhood friend, Zahir Jaffer. The suspect confessed the murder on the 26th of July, whereafter multiple attempts were made to release Zahir Jaffer on bail. However, with the pressing defense set by the lawyers and parents of Zahir Jaffer, the police and high court of Islamabad failed to prosecute the case successfully. This could have severe consequences for justice in the case of Noor Mukadam
