The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) on Sunday has issued a notice to TV channels asking them to stop broadcasting CCTV footage of Noor Mukadam.
The issued notification states that the “telecast of CCTV footage” of Noor and Zahir has been prohibited under Section 27 of the Pemra Ordinance, 2002. Pemra also warned strict action against the violators.
The CCTV footage of Noor Mukadam from the house of Zahir Jaffer, the prime suspect in her murder has been also making rounds on social media.
On November 9, the prosecution in the Noor Mukadam murder case submitted the transcript of the CCTV footage of Zahir’s house in the court of Additional Sessions Judge Ata Rabbani, which shows the events that led to Noor’s brutal murder. The CCTV footage revealed that Noor tried to run away from Zahir Jaffer’s house twice before she was murdered.
Noor was found murdered at a residence in Islamabad’s upscale Sector F-7/4 on July 20. Her death sparked national outrage, including protests and candlelight vigils across the country.
