Zahir’s father told him no need to panic “men were coming to dispose Noor’s body”

ISLAMABAD: Zahir Jaffer, the main suspect  in Noor Mukadam’s murder, has admitted to killing her, while DNA reports have confirmed the former ambassador’s daughter was raped,  a challan submitted by the police to the trial court and obtained byGeo News on Saturday, said.

The interim challan was submitted to Additional District and Sessions Judge Atta Rabbani on September 9. Earlier, the challan was filed in the court of District and Sessions Judge Kamran Basharat Mufti. However, the court tried the case on September 9 and later transferred it.


The challan submitted to the court by the police stated that Zahir had confessed to killing Noor and a DNA report confirmed she was raped. Zahir also gave a statement about beheading Noor, the challan stated.

According to the challan, Zahir said that when Noor refused to marry him, he forcibly locked her up in a room. He told his guard to not let anyone in and not let her out. He hid her mobile phone in another room, which was retrieved by the police from a closet in his house after questioning Zahir.

Zahir informed his father about Noor’s murder and the father told him there was no need to panic and that his “men were coming to dispose of the body”, the challan said.

The interim challan further said that if Zakir had informed the police in time, Noor’s murder could have been avoided. The father helped his son, it said.

According to the statement of the suspect, a quarrel with Amjad Mahmood, one of the employees of Therapy Works who was present at the crime scene and was injured, took place over a misunderstanding.

The employees of Therapy Works tried to hide the act of the suspect and destroy evidence, the challan said, adding that Amjad lied to the hospital administration and said he got injured in a road accident, as his medical slip states.

The interim challan states that the photographs and fingerprints stored in the digital video recorder (DVR) also belong to the prime suspect.

According to a DNA report from August 12, the suspect also raped Noor. The interim challan  states that Zahir had booked a flight to the United States on July 19 but did not travel.

When she jumped from the washroom window to escape, the watchman did not facilitate her. The gardener, Jan Mohammad, also did not allow Noor to open the gate. If he had allowed Noor to open the gate, she could have escaped her death.
