On the other hand, the same court rejected the bail application for Zahir Jaffer’s father, Zakir Jaffer. The court had rejected his plea to overturn the decision of the Islamabad High Court that rejected his bail petition. The court said, “We will not interfere in the high court’s orders.”

Zakir Jaffer had been accused of aiding and abetting his son in his crime. Phone calls indicate that Zahir had called his father while Mukadam had been imprisoned in his house. Other evidence presented before the court included testimony from the watchman who said he had informed Zakir Jaffer on what was transpiring in the house. Zahir Jaffer himself admitted that his father knew about what he had done to Noor Mukadam.In a recent interview, Zahir Jaffer claimed that his father told him to “get rid of her”
