ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has ordered to pronounce its verdict in the Noor Muqadam case within two months
Islam Abad: Zahir Jaffer, the main accused in the Noor Muqaddam case, has told the court that Noor Muqaddam offered himself as a victim.
Additional Sessions Judge Islamabad Ata Rabbani heard the Noor Muqadam case. Six accused including the main accused were produced before the Islamabad court from Adiala Jail while six accused who were released on bail also appeared in person on court notice. The lawyers of accused Ismat Adam, Zakir Jaffer and Tahir Zahoor gave arguments on the plea to stay the indictment.
Zahir Jaffer told the court that Rizwan Abbasi Advocate is not his lawyer, what the lawyer is saying is baseless. I want, let me, I want to call to strengthen this case.
During the hearing, accused Zahir Jaffar, while kneeling, folded his hands and apologized to the court, saying that sacrifice is also permissible in Islam and Noor Muqaddam offered himself for sacrifice, this is what I did and the pistol belongs to my father. The murder was committed by me. Yes, I agree. What the lawyer is saying is baseless. Leave me alone. We fought. It was my fault. She was also angry. I don’t want to die in prison. I should get married. Should be, imprison me at home, beat me in jail, hang me, I can’t stay in jail or pardon me.
On this occasion, the accused also addressed the father of the slain Noor Muqaddam, Shaukat Muqaddam, saying that he and his daughter loved each other, we have been in a relationship for three years, my life is in your hands, you can save me, you I don’t mind if you want to take my life.
The court indicted 12 accused including Zahir Jaffer, Zakir Jaffer, Ismat Adam, Iftikhar, Jamil and Jan Mohammad. The accused pleaded not guilty. The court summoned prosecution witnesses on October 20.
It should be noted that the Islamabad High Court has ordered to pronounce the verdict in the Noor Muqadam case within two months.
