The Islamabad police have decided not to release the CCTV footage from Zahir Jaffer’s house which reportedly shows Noor Mukadam trying to escape from the house she was held captive in before her murder.

Islamabad Operations DIG Afzaal Ahmed Kauser said Thursday at a press conference that the case is being investigated and the courts are hearing it too. “We can’t formally share any material because of privacy issues.”

On Wednesday, an Islamabad court approved Zahir’s physical remand for three more days.

A case under Section 302 (punishment for murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code has been registered against Zahir at the Kohsar Police Station.

Zahir was sound, in his senses when he was arrested, Investigation SSP Ata-Ur-Rehman said, adding that the suspect was not under the influence of any drugs. “He may have a past history but at least at the time of arrest he was in his senses.” He had attacked someone else too but when the police reached the house he had been tied up.

The suspect worked for his family business Ahmed Jaffer & Company as a chief brand strategist, and as a therapist. The police have also sealed the office of Therapy Works office in the case.
