ISLAMABAD: The six accused on the Noor Mukadam murder case, which includes Zahir Jaffer, his parents, and the staff members, were presented before Judicial Magistrate in Islamabad On Monday.
The prime accused, who was wearing shalwar-kameez and had cut his previously long, ponytailed hair, asked police for “privacy” as media gathered around him to seek comment outside the court.
“Can we have some privacy,” Jaffer said, asking police officers to remove journalists from the scene.
“Stop them from filming us,” Jaffer’s mother Asmat Jaffer said as police requested journalists to turn off their cameras.
Asmat also snatched Geo News reporter’s phone and deleted the video of herself. She was not wearing handcuffs.
According to the media personals, the murderers were being given special treatment by the police during the court hearing.
Meanwhile, this was the first time the six accused were brought before the judge in an open court.
