Extension of accused’s remand on Saturday

The accused, wearing a handcuffed brown and gray lining T-shirt, was wearing a face mask and a hair ponytail.

The courtroom was a bit crowded and journalists, lawyers and others were trying their best not to be able to hear or see any part of the proceedings.

The judge asked, “Who is the investigator and what is the stance?”

Sajid Cheema was present in the court as public prosecutor. While Shah Khawar was the lawyer of plaintiff Shaukat Muqaddam.

Then a journalist came out from inside and then a lawyer repeated this sentence. A two-day remand is to be presented on Monday.

As the accused was being escorted by the police towards the vehicle, the media representatives present there made a video of him and asked him, “Obviously, would you like to say something about why you killed him?”

So he says something that makes a little bit of sense in the phrase, ‘I’ve been misrepresented.’

As he continued to speak English, a journalist asked, “Are you Pakistani?”

His response was, “No, I’m an American citizen.” Then he is heard saying, “And I am asking for a lawyer for a week …”

Then they are asked, “What is your position?”, “Was she your girlfriend?”

There is no answer and the police take them through the door of the court.

The accused was shifted in a vehicle and shifted to Kohsar police station again.

In the meanwhile, the accused’s words are clearly understood and heard, but the policeman, while taking him away, says in a very loud voice, “O brother John, we will write to you whatever his position is.”

When English is constantly spoken by the accused, an official says, “He is a very capable child, yes …” Then someone started saying, “I don’t speak the language.”

Noor Muqaddam’s father and some relatives and lawyers were also present in the court.

However, apparently none of his family members were present.

It is to be noted that Zahir Jaffer is the son of Zakir Jaffer, Managing Director of a private company based in Karachi and according to the company’s website, he himself held the post of ‘Chief Brand Strategist’.

However, his name and position have now been removed from the company’s website.
