The accused in the murder case of 26-year-old British-Pakistani Myra Zulfiqar on Wednesday moved the district and sessions court for bail in the case.
The counsel for Zahir Jadoon pleaded through the bail application that challan of the case has been submitted by the police, while no evidence has been collected from his client.
In the plea, the accused claimed that he has been named as the main accused in the case over personal enmity. “I have nothing to do with Myra Zulfiqar murder case, therefore release orders should be issued by the court,” Jadoon further said in his bail plea.
Meanwhile, the court after summoning a detailed report from the police adjourned the case till August 10.
Earlier in May, the police had said that Zahir Jadoon had confessed to his involvement in the murder case.
“I had a brawl with Myra when she was intoxicated,” the accused had said in a confessional statement. “I murdered Myra Zulfiqar on the morning of May 3 and her housemate Iqra had knowledge of it.”
The woman, a British national, was found dead in a house in Lahore’s DHA Phase V on May 3. Myra Zulfiqar had come to Pakistan two months back and had been living with a friend in the house.
