Jail authorities are reluctant to present Shahrukh Jatoi before a judicial magistrate in Malir, Karachi, who was entertaining the Jatoi’s escape case since 2013 after Shahzeb Khan’s murder.
The judicial magistrate of Malir came down hard on the authorities and ordered them to present Jatoi in court by all means.
The jail authorities were reported to be backed by the stance that the culprit is convicted, which explains why due to security reasons, he could not be presented before the court.
However, the court commented that jail authorities were solely responsible for providing him undue security and asked him to be presented before the court.
Officials from the jail said that the convict is on bail in the case and is subject to imprisonment.
The case has been hit with delays on absolutely no legit grounds for the past five years due to Shahrukh Jatoi’s consistent absence. Five culprits have filed bail application due to the delay of the case.
Shahrukh Jatoi after murdering Shahzeb on December 27, 2012 had successfully eloped abroad under mere deception.
Later, in 2013, he was nabbed at the airport. The CCTV footage from the airport paved way for a case that was filed against him for trying to sneak off the country after murdering Shahzeb Khan.
