ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday sought comments from respondents in a case seeking cancellation of bail of Therapyworks employees in Noor Mukadam murder case.

The court also sought the case record from additional district and session court.

Justice Aamer Farooq of IHC heard the case filed by Shaukat Mukadam, the father of the slain Noor Mukadam.

Petitioner’s lawyer Barrister Qasim Nawaz Abbasi said the accused had hid facts from the lower court. He said the plaintiff had also named Therapyworks Chief Executive Officer Tahir Zahoor and other employees as accused in his supplementary statement.

A court had already dismissed the bail of Zahir Jaffar’s parents, he said adding that the above decision was announced by another court.

After listening to arguments, the court sought comments from respondents along with the case record and adjourned hearing in the case.
