The interior ministry has decided to put the alleged killer of Mukadam – the daughter of an ex-ambassador – on the no-fly list at the request of the Islamabad Police, it emerged Saturday.

According to sources, the passport of Zahir Jaffer has been confiscated by the authorities to stop him from fleeing abroad. The gruesome killer of ex-ambassador Shaukat Mukadam’s daughter Noor Mukadam, 27, has shocked the federal capital with calls of exemplary punishment to the alleged murderer, who is a son of a business tycoon. The team investigating the incident recorded the statement of the mother of the victim and grilled the psychotherapists, who were called first by some family friend instead of calling the police but their responses could not satisfy the investigating team.
