ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister of Law Barrister Farogh Naseem on Thursday said that he welcomes the verdict in Noor Muqadam murder case. Justice has truly won by the decision given.
Notably, the Sessions Court in Islamabad has sentenced the guilty Zahir Jaffer to death, while nine accused, including the parents of the main accused, have been acquitted.
The court has sentenced the guards and gardeners to 10 years in prison, while acquitting all the defendants in the treatment work.
According to the final verdict given by Additional Sessions Judge Atta Rabbani, the gardener and guard did not inform anyone about the incident and they did not even try to stop it, which falls in the domain of assistance in the crime.

The Noor Muqadam murder case has been brought to a conclusion successfully and the decision has strengthened the system of justice.”
