Ex-ambassador’s daughter was killed in Islamabad! The murder took place in the city’s upscale F-7 area.

Social media in Pakistan has been in an uproar for the past two days over the murder of the daughter of Pakistan’s former ambassador to South Korea and Kazakhstan.

Noor Mukadam, 27, daughter of Shaukat Mukadam, was found murdered at a residence in the capital’s upscale Sector F-7/4 on Tuesday.

According to the First Information Report (FIR), Noor was hit with a sharp object which led to her death.

“She was first shot and then slaughtered,” the investigating officer said. Another person was injured in the attack as well, as being reported.

Making progress in the murder case, Islamabad SSP Investigations said that they have arrested the accused soon after getting the information about the incident.

A friend of the victim, identified as Zahir Jaffer, was arrested over his alleged involvement in the murder. As per the police source, he is the son of “a leading businessman of the country”.

 

While addressing a press conference to address SSP (Investigation) Ataur Rehman was asked about the widely rumoured drug abuse history of the suspect, Zahir.

He said that the accused was not under the influence at the time of the arrest.

“There is no proof of the accused being a psycho. We are waiting for the DNA report of the accused and the victim,” he said.

He may have had a past history of taking drugs but at least at this time he was completely in his senses.”

He emphasized that police were focusing on the suspect’s “mental frame of mind” and those initial findings indicated the suspect was completely aware of his actions when he allegedly committed the murder.

The senior police officer added that the suspect was tied with ropes by some people whom he had attacked after killing Noor before police arrived at the scene.

Police had initially said the victim was shot at before being “slaughtered”. Another person was also injured in the incident.

Meanwhile, the police have recorded the statement of the killer’s father and his two guards.

 

Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri condemned the incident and expressed his condolences.

“Deeply saddened by the murder of the daughter of a senior colleague and former ambassador of Pakistan. Heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and I hope the perpetrator of this heinous crime will be brought to justice,” the spokesperson wrote on Twitter, with a hashtag #JusticeForNoor.

 

#Justice ForNoor and #ZahirJaffer are among the top trends on Pakistani social media:
