The main accused, Shahrukh Jatoi (L), in the murder case of 20-year-old Shahzeb Khan (R) was shifted to the Police Headquarters in Karachi's Garden area via an armored personnel carrier (APC) of the police amid strict security arrangements.    — File Photo by Online

KARACHI: The Anti Terrorism Court (ATC) sent the main accused Shahrukh Jatoi, along with Siraj Talpur, Sajjad Talpur, and Ghulam Mustafa Lashari on seven day remand, in the Shahzeb Khan murder case, DawnNews reported.

The lawyer of the main accused appealed that Shahrukh is an adolescent, therefore he should not be tried in court.

To verify his age, the court directed that Shahrukh be sent to Service Hospital for a medical checkup.

Earlier today, Shahrukh Jatoi, was produced in the ATC complex on Thursday, January 17.

Shahrukh was earlier was shifted from Abu Dhabi to Karachi on Thursday morning.

Senior Superintendent of Sindh Police (SSP) Niaz Ahmed Khoso said he was designated the task of arresting Shahrukh, adding that he was unaware of any information concerning the arrest of former chief of Oil & Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) Tauqir Sadiq.

Shahrukh was brought to Karachi through an aircraft of a private airline which landed on Terminal 1 instead of Jinnah Terminal. Terminal 1 is usually used for Haj flights.

Shahrukh was shifted to the Police Headquarters in Karachi's Garden area via an armoured personnel carrier (APC) of the police amid strict security arrangements.

Sharukh had surrendered himself to authorities at the Pakistani consulate in Dubai who shifted him to Karachi as soon as a go-ahead was received from the Interpol, police officials said, adding that Jatoi's physical remand would soon be obtained from court.

An instructor in USA, kidnapped and assaulted a young boy. Police searched for them and found the boy, humiliated and broken. Instructor was caught and as authorities were bringing him from the aircraft handcuffed, in custody. The father of that boy, put a bullet in that psychos head. Police took control of the situation and brought the father to the court. Judge gave him some 9 months or so of community service and put him on probation for a year maybe. Moral: if they cant get you justice, you can actually deliver justice, atleast that's what we have seen in this California case.

Everyone wants him hanged but no one knows what happened.......... Justice should be served but through the due legal process.
Adil Jadoon Jan 17, 2013 02:53pm

pakiboy Jan 17, 2013 06:46am

Only thanks to MQM.

Along with going thru the medical tests to ascertain his age; the authorites should also ask the college for his admission documents, which will certainly have his date of birth. By the way, I heard that he also used to study in Greenwich University. I wonder if this is correct or not?? Still, lets make an example of this person and hang him publicly.
Asif Kahsmiri Jan 17, 2013 01:37pm
Hang and make an example PLEASE.
Shahryar Shirazi Jan 17, 2013 07:48am
He can't be hanged since this wasn't a murder in 1st degree. If he admits to it, he will claim this happened in heat of the moment. 14 years is what he is looking it. Which probably is good for him. Furthermore, I hope he doesn't get "A" class in the jail ... Shahryar
Shani Jan 17, 2013 09:40am
for what?
Abdul Mannan Mulla Jan 17, 2013 07:55pm
All the 4 involved in the murder case of Shahzeb Khan, should be Speedily Tried and hanged until death.
Adnan A Jan 17, 2013 07:16am
Hope this Jatoi guy gets hanged or life in prison. I have absolutely no mercy for him.
zaheer Jan 17, 2013 07:34pm
Justice must prevail
Secular Pakistan Jan 17, 2013 01:51pm
A tiny step in the right direction. The politicial system and the courts will determine wether the victim and his family get any justice. Media should keep the spotlight.
khanam Jan 17, 2013 01:47pm
People like him should be sent behind bars for life not for just 14 years, OR hanged OR victim's family should be given a gun to shoot him.
Arif Jan 17, 2013 06:05am
very good news !
Aamir Jan 17, 2013 08:56am
Arrest does not matter. It is justice. We will have to wait and see. This will be test of our legal system
Concerned Jan 17, 2013 01:54pm
He should be tried as an adult as its a serious crime. Our Law allows that.
FuYo Jan 17, 2013 07:53am
Let me tell you the end result ... the victims family will be forced to accept the blood money and Mr. Jatoi will have the same life as he was having a month ago !
Anony Jan 17, 2013 05:22pm
I somehow have the same feeling.
Anony Jan 17, 2013 05:24pm
This guy should be shown NO mercy. The way he killed an innocent young boy, he should meet the same fate.
BC Jan 17, 2013 03:40pm
why do we constantly have to be so barbaric? Put the guy in jail.
Khurram Jan 17, 2013 02:41pm
Nothing is useful in Pakistan:( They will settle the claim with shahzebs family and these killers will be free and will be living in our society and will be more clever than before. I will see a change in judiciary if any of these three culprits are hanged withing a months time. Delay means giving time to threaten the victims family and push them to reach a settlement
Cyrus Howell Jan 17, 2013 03:08pm
In the halls of justice, justice is in the halls.
Malang Jan 17, 2013 07:00am
Hang till death for Jatio infront of entire publc to make this example to all criminals.
M Ali Jan 17, 2013 03:58pm
Nothing will come of this case...mark my words, as we speak there will be deals going on behind the scenes..sad sad day for Pakistan. :-(
Sajid Jan 17, 2013 04:01pm
Nothing will happen. The lawyer will claim that he is not an adult and the maximum penalty for juvenile is three years. He will be out in a year and a half on good conduct, only if he gets the max. penalty. Hanged or life imprisonment..... Only dreams.
Aamir Jan 17, 2013 03:26pm
1. People of Karachi 2. Media 3. CJ of Pakistan Well done all of you - you made it possible. Next Step: Now people would like to see a punishment that should match to the crime committed by these people.
