Chief justice takes notice of Shahrukh Jatoi being shifted to Karachi hospitalPakistan
Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Tuesday took notice of media reports about Shahrukh Jatoi — the main accused in the 2012 Shahzeb murder case — being shifted to a hospital in Karachi.
Jatoi had been shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre on Saturday, just a week after the Supreme Court set aside the bail granted to him in the murder of 20-year-old Shahzeb Khan.
The CJP "has taken notice of reported shifting of accused Sharakh Jatoi, and/ or others from jail to hospital after cancellation of bail", a press release issued by the court's registrar said.
Justice Nisar has directed the inspector general of Sindh police and inspector general of jails Sindh to submit a report about the matter within 24 hours.
