IHC adjourns hearing in Noor case till today


The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday adjourned hearing till today(Wednesday) on various appeals in Noor Mukadam murder case.

The court also served notices to respondents on a petition seeking medical analysis of the main accused Zahir Jaffar. A two-judge bench comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Sardar Ijaz Ishaq Khan heard the appeals of the plaintiff and accused in the murder case.

At the outset of the hearing, defence lawyer Usman Khosa pleaded that the record of the phone talk of the accused with his parents didn’t exist, adding that the forensic analysis of the mobile was also not done.

The mobile in possession was different from the one in the record, he said, adding that the IMEI number of the mobile of the victim girl was also different.

The lawyer said that the FIR had mentioned the telephonic conversation of Noor Mukadam with her parents but the mobiles were not taken into custody. He said that WhatsApp data could be recovered but no such attempt was made.
