ISLAMABAD: On Monday, Supreme Court of Pakistan has dismissed the review petition filed by prime accused Shahrukh Jatoi’s counsel in Shahzaib Khan Murder case.
In December Supreme Court of Pakistan took a suo moto notice, following a civil society petition pleading the Supreme Court to overrule the Sindh High Court decision; as the lower court relieved terrorism charges from the convicted Shahrukh Jatoi and ordered the re trail of Shahzeb murder case.
The court also granted bail to Sharukh and his accomplices.
Shahrukh Jatoi was sentenced to death by Anti Terrorism Court; however his counsel pleaded the Sindh High Court to de-rule the decision made by ATC as the accused was juvenile when he committed his crime; therefore terrorism charges eventually become void upon him.
However, on February 1, a three member bench of Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar directed SHC to constitute a bench and look the matter on merit and decide the case within two months.
The Court also then ordered the re arrest and placing the names of Shahrukh Jatoi and other accomplices in Exit Control List(ECL).
