Islamabad court has approved the bail request of Therapy Works CEO Tahir Zahoor in the Noor Mukadam murder case.
On August 14, the Islamabad police arrested the owner and five employees of Therapy Works, an organisation where prime suspect Zahir Jaffer reportedly worked as a therapist. They were taken into custody on charges of concealing evidence.
In a hearing on Monday, Additional Sessions Judge Ata Rabbani heard the bail pleas of Tahir Zahoor, Chief Executive Officer of Therapy Works, and five other accused in the case.
Tahir Zahoor has only been accused of hiding the evidence but he wasn’t present at the site of the murder, his lawyer Zafarullah told the court. He said that his client is 73 years old and suffers from diabetes, along with heart and kidney diseases.
Therapy Works employees had initially detained Zahir Jaffer and then handed him over to the police, the lawyer argued, adding that the charges against him are bailable.
The court had approved the bail to all the six employees, including Dr Tahir Zahoor, CEO of Therapy Works and ordered them to submit a bond of Rs 500,000 each.
