Noor Muqqadam murder: Alleged killer to be put on ECL

ISLAMABAD: The government has decided to put the alleged killer of an ex-ambassador’s daughter on the ECL and confiscated his passport, sources in the interior ministry told The News on Friday.

The team investigating the gruesome murder of ex-ambassador Shaukat Muqqadam’s daughter Noor Muqqadam, 27, recorded the statement of mother of the victim and grilled the psychotherapist, who were called first by some family friend instead of calling the police but their responses could not satisfy the investigating team.

A responsible police officer told The News that the alleged killer posed himself as mentally ill to avoid investigation, adding that the suspect would be produced before the court to obtain his physical remand. The officer didn't rule out the aspect of a planned murder, as the alleged killer had booked his ticket to flee abroad after killing the woman.
