The Nation  |  Oct 20, 2021

A district and sessions court in Islamabad scolded the main accused in the Noor Mukadam murder case, Zahir Jaffer, for violating the court’s decorum on Wednesday.

Zahir earned the court’s ire after he attempted to speak again and again to interrupt the court proceedings.

However, the district and sessions judge ordered the police to silence the accused and the police complied with the orders.

Earlier, the police produced Zahir Jaffer, his father Zakir Jaffer and mother Asmat Adamjee before the court.

The counsel of the accused apprised the court that his clients have challenged their indictment in the case at the Islamabad High Court and notices have been issued in this regard.

The public prosecutor told the court that the witnesses have been called for fingerprinting.

Later, the court adjourned the hearing till afternoon and sent the accused to ‘bakhshi khana’.
