ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Tuesday took suo motu notice of news pertaining to Shahzeb Khan’s murder and ordered for a report to be presented in court, Express News reported.
The chief justice summoned the advocate general Sindh and the provincial police chief on January 4, ordering them to bring reports on the case and the investigation.
It has been a week since 20-year-old Shahzeb Khan was gunned down, yet the police have failed to make any significant progress due to immense political pressure.
Shahzeb was killed allegedly by Shahrukh Jatoi near Mubarak Masjid in DHA on December 25.
The killing resulted from a small argument he had with Nawab Siraj Talpur, when the latter’s servant verbally harassed his sister.
Talpur and his friend, Jatoi, allegedly followed Shahzeb, even after the issue was settled, and shot him dead.
The two main suspects reportedly escaped to rural Sindh after the murder.
A three-member investigation committee was formed by the Sindh Police but so far, the committee has not made any arrests. The investigation teams that were sent to rural Sindh also came back without any breakthrough.
