Islamabad (Dunya News) - 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.
It should be noted that the Sessions Court in Islamabad has sentenced convict Zahir Jaffer to death, while nine accused including parents of the main accused have been acquitted.
The court has sentenced accused guard and gardener to 10 years imprisonment while acquitting all the accused in the therapy works.

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