ISLAMABAD:

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday sought comments from respondents in a case seeking cancellation of bail of Therapy Works' employees in the Noor Mukadam murder case. The court also sought the case record from additional district and sessions court.     

Justice Aamer Farooq of IHC heard the case filed by Shaukat Mukadam, the father of the victim. Petitioner's lawyer Barrister Qasim Nawaz Abbasi said the accused had hidden facts from the lower court. He maintained that the plaintiff had also named Therapy Works' Chief Executive Officer Dr Tahir Zahoor Ahmed and other employees as coaccused in his supplementary statement.
