Shahrukh Jatoi, others arrested in Shahzeb murder case as SC rules verdict

Islamabad police arrested Shahrukh Jatoi and two others in the Shahzeb Khan murder case after the Supreme Court (SC) ruled its verdict on Thursday.
SC changed the appeal in Shahzeb Khan murder case into suo motu action, and nullified the Sindh High Court (SHC) order to remove charges of terrorism on Jatoi. Consequently, the bail issued by SHC to Jatoi was dismissed.
After the bail was nullified, police arrested the suspects including Jatoi. SC has given a deadline of two months to SHC and directed it to decide the appeals on merit.
SC restored the terrorism charges on Jatoi as the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar led the three-member bench to hear appeals filed by the civil society against SHC order. SC also ordered to place the names of the suspects on Exit Control List (ECL).
As soon as the top court announced its order, the suspects were taken into custody within the courtroom. The other suspects include Siraj Talpur and Sajjad Talpur.
