10/8: The investigation for Noor Mukadam’s brutal murder is taking place with officials already investigating alarming findings.
As for now, calls of Zahir’s mother, Asmat Jaffer, are being looked into. According to many people accustomed to the incident and investigations, the authorities are taking a keen interest in infrequent communications between Zahir and his mother and the head of a private Rawalpindi-based security firm on the day of the murder.
July 20: The Day of the Murder
According to sources, Asmat Jaffer had made an increasingly alarming number of calls on the day of the murder while she herself was in Karachi. Her phone records indicate she called Trillium Information Security Systems’ head, a private security firm. The same day, Zahir was also in touch with the same number.
Murder Took Place Between 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm on July 20
Many calls were also made around the time of the murder. Records say Asmat called the head of the security firm at 7:12 pm. Later, Asmat and Zahir spoke at 7:29 pm, also the last time they spoke. Police believe that he informed her about Noor’s death because the call lasted for 46 seconds.
After Zahir’s call, her mother immediately called up Trillium’s head at 7:30 pm and was on the phone for over 5 minutes. Shortly after that, she also spoke to the head of the firm thrice. The authorities are still trying to figure out the purpose of these frequent calls.
It is notable to mention that the firm deals with cyber and digital security and emergency response.
The investigation of call records comes after the court said that they (parents) “not only abetted but also made utmost efforts to destroy the evidence.”
Trillium Information Security Systems owner told The News that “I have nothing to do with what happened [at Jaffer House]. These are absolutely false findings. Whatever the folks are saying is incorrect, as I have no connection with this [Noor Mukadam] murder.”
Many more calls were made on the same day (about 200) by Asmat Jaffer before the murder. The people she contacted include “her servant, neighbors in F-7/4, a few influential individuals, a security company, capital police, a welfare trust, four private firms, her immediate family members and periodically with her son.” Investigators believe she anticipated something bad might as well happen.
July 21: Asmat Traveled from KHI to ISL
At 6:30 am, Asmat arrived at Quaid-e-Azam International Airport, Karachi, and continued to speak to a dozen people before getting on the plane flying to Islamabad. She arrived in the capital at about 9:18 am and was back on her phone. After returning, she didn’t return to her family home but instead went to F-8 for a few hours and then to F-6 at a friend’s place. This is where she contacted her husband at 2:07 pm on July 22.
27/7: The prime suspect, Zahir Jaffer in Noor Mukadam’s murder case, has confessed to committing the crime in front of police. However, he has yet to confess in front of a magistrate by law (under section 164)
The murderer has been booked on the (302) premeditated murder charges of the Pakistan Penal Code. While the accused has taken responsibility for his heinous crime, he has not yet given a precise reason for his actions. According to the reports, Zahir has changed his statements a couple of times regarding his motive for murder.
Footage of CCTV reveals many details of what had happened. Sources reveal that “in the footage, the girl (Noor) can be seen trying to escape from the house by jumping from the first floor and rushing towards the main gate.”
After landing on the ground, Noor was seen running towards the main door but failed to escape. Noor was followed by Zahir and was dragged back inside the house while the guards witnessed everything happening but didn’t help the girl. He then took Noor inside and locked the door. Within three hours, she was murdered.
A knife, a pistol, and an iron mace from the suspect’s possession have been recovered, the public prosecutor, Sajid Cheema, told the court. According to sources in 2016, Geo News says that Zahir Jaffer was jailed for three months in the UK for sexual harassment and rape cases and was deported later.
The murderer is placed on Exit Control List (ECL) to guarantee that he cannot escape to the US.
Baaghi TV reported that police had located Zahir’s phone, and there is evidence that Zahir Jaffer “has a track record of vile and violent behavior towards women.”
Zakir Jaffers, Ismat Adamjee, cook, and guard, arrested
On Sunday, Jaffer’s parents were arrested along with a cook and a guard. They were imprisoned on the charge of concealing the heinous crime of murdering and beheading Noor Mukadam.
