ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Judicial Magistrate Muhammad Shoaib Akhtar extended the physical remand of Zahir Jaffer, the main accused, until August 2 in the Noor Mukadam murder case.

The police told the court that they have to investigate some more characters revealed through the CCTV footage.

The accused counsel said that recovery had been made from the accused whose polygraph test had been conducted as well. He demanded that the accused should be sent to jail.


27-year-old Noor Mukadam, daughter of former Pakistani diplomat Shaukat Mukadam, was found murdered at a residence in Islamabad's Sector F-7/4 on July 20.

A first information report (FIR) was registered later the same day against Zahir Jaffer, who was arrested from the site of the murder, under Section 302 of the Pakistan Penal Code on the complaint of the victim's father.

In his complaint, Shaukat Mukadam stated that he had gone to Rawalpindi on July 19 to buy a goat for Eidul Azha, while his wife had gone out to pick up clothes from her tailor. On their return to home in the evening, they found their daughter Noor absent from their house in Islamabad.

They had found her cellphone number to be switched off and started a search for her. Sometime later, Noor had called her parents to inform them that she was travelling to Lahore with some friends and would return in a day or two.

The complainant said he had later received a call from the accused, son of Zakir Jaffer, whose family were the ex-diplomat's acquaintances. The accused had informed Shaukat that Noor was not with him.

At around 10pm on July 20, Shaukat Mukadam received a call from Kohsar police station, informing him that Noor had been murdered.

Police, according to the FIR, had subsequently taken the complainant to Zahir's house in Sector F-7/4 where he discovered that his ‘daughter has been brutally murdered with a sharp-edged weapon and beheaded’.
