Shahrukh Jatoi shifted to death cell following orders of Chief Justice

Shahrukh Jatoi was shifted to the death cell at the Central Jail on Saturday following orders by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar to concerned authorities.
Jatoi, along with Siraj Talpur and others, is a convict in the Shahzeb Khan murder case.
The chief justice paid a visit to Landhi Jail earlier today, where he reviewed the arrangements and listened to the prisoners.
When he saw Jatoi’s prison room, the chief justice was annoyed at the C-Class facility available to him 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.
Shahzeb was gunned down by Jatoi in a posh locality of Karachi on December 25, 2012.
The Sindh High Court later set aside the punishments awarded to the accused by the anti-terrorism court and ordered a retrial of the case in a sessions court. 
The Supreme Court earlier this year took a sou motu action and nullified the SHC order.
