A delegation of US Embassy in Islamabad visited Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi on Thursday and held a meeting with Zahir Jaffer, who is in jail for murdering Noor Mukaddam, daughter of a former Pakistani diplomat, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

According to details, three members of US Embassy staff met Zahir Jaffer in the office of Deputy Superintendent of the jail.

The embassy requested the jail administration for a meeting with the accused as he was a dual national.

After meeting Zahir Jaffer, the US delegation left for Islamabad.

On July 20, 2021, Noor Mukadam was found brutally murdered in Islamabad's F-7/4 sector. Following the discovery of her body, Jaffer was arrested as the prime suspect in the case.

A trial court in Islamabad on February 24, 2022 sentenced Jaffer to death for murdering Noor Mukadam. The court also found Jaffer guilty of rape and handed over 25 years of rigorous imprisonment and a fine of Rs200,000.

A division bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on March 14 upheld Jaffer’s death sentence while also converting his life imprisonment into a death sentence.
