The hearing on the Noor Mukadam murder case resumed today. In today’s hearing witnesses were cross-examined. Shaukat Mukadam’s statement was supposed to be heard today. However, his statement was not taken today and he has now been summoned by the court on January 15 to record his statement.

The decision on the formation of a medical board to determine Zahir Jaffer’s mental condition has also been reserved by the court.

Noor Mukadam was brutally murdered at a residence in Islamabad’s upscale Sector F-7/4 on July 20. The case is currently on trial. Her death sparked national outrage, including protests and candlelight vigils across the country.
