Shahzeb Murder Case: Shahrukh Jatoi, others handed over to Sindh Police
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Shahrukh Jatoi, the prime accused in Shahzeb murder case, and his accomplices, have been handed over to Sindh police amid tight security on Friday.
Police had arrested Shahrukh Jatoi and the other two suspects from the courtroom after the verdict had been announced by the Supreme Court. The names of the accused have also been placed on the Exit Control List (ECL).
A five-member team of Sindh police reached Secretariat police station to take the custody of Shahrukh Jatoi and the other two suspects.
After completing the legal formalities the suspects were handed over to Sindh police.
Earlier, the apex court set aside the Sindh High Court’s (SHC) decision ordering a retrial in the Shahzeb Khan murder case.
The case against the accused – Shahrukh Jatoi, Siraj Talpur and Sajjad Ali Talpur – will now be heard by an anti-terrorism court (ATC). “Evidence and arguments will be heard from scratch,” the SC ruled, adding that the bails of the accused were against the law.
The accused, who had been released on bail after the SHC had ordered a retrial in the case, were immediately taken into custody by Islamabad police and would be handed over to the Sindh police. The court ordered that their names also be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL).
