Parents tried to save their son – Prosecutor.
ISLAMABAD Aug 5,2021 – The Islamabad court on Thursday, dismissed bail pleas of the main accused Zahir ‘s parents- Zakir Jafar and Asmat Zakir Jafar in the Noor Mukadam murder case.
Additional Sessions Judge Muhammad Sohail reserved the verdict on the bail plea of the accused Zafar’s parents after hearing the arguments yesterday.
Zahir Jaffer’s father Zakir Jaffer and mother Asmat Adamjee had filed a bail application in the Islamabad court stating that they were not with their son and did not know that such a thing was happening at home.
The public prosecutor told the court that the suspect had been in touch with his parents, but they did not inform the police. He argued that they tried to save their son.
“When the employee called, the act was happening but they sent therapists instead of the police. The pistol is also in the name of the suspect’s father Zakir Jaffer,” the prosecutor said.
The prosecutor said that call history, CDR, DVR and CCTV footage can be seen. He said the parents tried to save their child on the basis of dishonesty and that, at this stage, their bail application should be rejected.
Today (Thursday), the court announced the decision and rejected the bail pleas of Zahir’s parents.
The parents of the accused Zahir are in Adiala jail on judicial remand.
