KARACHI: On Saturday, the Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, on a visit to Landhi Jail expressed anger at the lavish facilities granted to Shahrukh Jatoi and ordered the authorities to transfer him to the death cell.
Along with Siraj Talpur and others, Shahrukh Jatoi is a convict in the Shahzeb Khan murder case.
The CJP was on a visit to Landhi jail earlier today.
The chief justice was annoyed at the C-Class facility enjoyed by Jatoi and questioned how someone convicted in a murder case could be allowed such facilities.
CJP Nisar ordered the prison authorities to transfer Jatoi to the death cell, and summoned a report from the IG Prisons.
An anti-terrorism court in 2013 had awarded death sentences to Jatoi and Siraj Talpur for the murder of Shahzeb, while life sentences were awarded to Sajjad Ali Talpur and Ghulam Murtaza Lashari.
