The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has ruled on appeals brought against the convictions of the defendants and the exoneration of the co-accused in the Noor Mukadam murder case, upholding Zahir Jaffer’s death sentence as the primary defendant.
The IHC withheld judgement on appeals in the well-known case in which Jaffer received a death sentence following a protracted trial that lasted more than four months.
On July 20, 2021, the body of the 27-year-old Noor, who had been beheaded, was discovered at the home of the main suspect, Jaffer, in Islamabad’s F-7/4 Sector.
The shocking death provoked outrage across the nation and calls for justice for Noor, which culminated in a sensational trial and final convictions. It appears that with death sentence of Zahir Jaffer, the justice shall be served.
