According to Adiala Jail doctors, the accused underwent several medical examinations.
Doctors at the Adiala Jail Hospital have certified Zahir Jaffer, the main suspect in the murder of Noor Mukadam, to be totally healthy.
The court asked the authorities to undertake Zahir’s medical examination in response to the accused’s petition, which was presented through his attorney. The report was presented to Additional Sessions Judge Atta Rabbani by the physicians at Adiala Jail.
According to the doctor, Zahir had a number of medical examinations. A psychiatrist also evaluated the accused and determined that he was totally fit.
“Zahir Jaffer is physically and mentally healthy,” the doctor said.
It was reported two days ago that all prosecution witnesses, including the investigating officer, had their testimony recorded in the Noor Mukadam murder case.
In the murder case, all witnesses, with the exception of the investigating officer, were cross-examined. Today, the investigating officer was cross-examined.
On January 18, plaintiff Shaukat Mukadam appeared in court and was cross-examined by the attorney for the principal defendants.
Through a video link, State Councilor Sikandar Zulqarnain Saleem, lawyer for the main accused Zahir Jaffer, cross-examined Shaukat Mukadam. Shaukat Mukadam stated that he served as an ambassador from 2010 until 2013. He stated that he had signed the FIR application.
The lawyer of the accused asked the plaintiff
“as a former ambassador, do you think it is right for a boy and a girl to have contacts without any relationship in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan?”
In response, Shaukat Mukadam stated that it was not right, but that the nature of the relationship should be determined. He stated that at colleges, females and boys study together. They’d known one other for 20 to 25 years.
However, lawyer Asad Jamal deemed the counsel’s inquiry unethical and demanded that it be dismissed.
