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.
