KARACHI: The main accused in the 20-year-old Shahzeb Khan’s murder case, Shahrukh Jatoi, was shifted from Abu Dhabi to Karachi in the early hours of Thursday, Daily Sitara Sindh reported.
Senior Superintendent of Sindh Police (SSP) Niaz Ahmed Khoso said he was designated the task of arresting Shahrukh, adding that he was unaware of any information concerning the arrest of former chief of Oil & Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) Tauqir Sadiq.
Shahrukh was brought to Karachi through an aircraft of a private airline which landed on Terminal 1 instead of Jinnah Terminal. Terminal 1 is usually used for Haj flights.
Shahrukh was shifted to the Police Headquarters in Karachi’s Garden area via an armoured personnel carrier (APC) of the police amid strict security arrangements.
Sharukh had surrendered himself to authorities at the Pakistani consulate in Dubai who shifted him to Karachi as soon as a go-ahead was received from the Interpol, police officials said, adding that Jatoi’s physical remand would soon be obtained from court.
