Court seeks details of pardon in Shahzeb murder case
KARACHI - A district and sessions court on Friday sought details of settlement between accused and victims's family in Shahzeb Khan murder case.

The main accused - Shahrukh Jatoi, Siraj Talpur, Sajjad Talpur and Ghulam Mustafa Talpur ─ also attended the hearing.


The court also summoned details of the arguments presented by lawyers in the case at the Sindh High Court, before the case was sent to the session court for re-hearing.

The court adjourned the case until January 20.



Shahrukh Jatoi Gets Bail


Shahrukh Jatoi and three other accused in the Shahzeb Khan murder case were freed on bail on Saturday after Aurangzeb Khan, the victim’s father, filed an affidavit in support of the convicts’ bail application in the court.

The complainant Aurangzeb Khan appealed to the court to not only release on bail the four men convicted of his son’s murder, but also requested that the case filed against them be dropped altogether.

District and Sessions Judge (South) Imdad Hussain Khoso allowed the bail pleas of Shahrukh, Siraj Talpur, his younger brother Nawab Sajjad Ali Talpur and their house servant Ghulam Murtaza Lashari against a surety bond of Rs500,000 each.

The applicants’ lawyers argued that the high court had recently removed a relevant section of the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1997 from the case and sent it for retrial.

While submitting the affidavit, Shahzeb’s father DSP Aurangzeb Khan submitted that he and his family members had pardoned all the accused without any pressure, coercion or interest but “in the name of Allah” and waived the right of Qisas and Diyat.


The affidavit stated that the complainant also had no objection if the court granted them bail or acquitted them.
