Noor Muqaddam’s murder case has dominated headlines for over six months now. The counsel for Zahir Jaffer, the main accused has now said that it was possible that she (Noor) may have been killed for honour as she had a “living relationship” with Zahir. Sikandar Zulqarnain Saleem, the counsel for Zahir Jaffer, stated that the police did not quiz the only brother of the victim.
Saleem tried to show that the complainant and victim’s father Shaukat Mukadam was involved in the crime.
He said the murder may have been a result of heat of the moment, adding that it was established that Zahir and Noor were in a consensual relationship. Her family members might have reached at Jaffer’s home and became furious.
He noted that the prime accused could be seen without any weapon while he was taking the victim inside the house, saying it was possible that Zahir took Noor inside the house and closed the door as he wanted to save her from someone.
