KARACHI: Shahrukh Jatoi was escorted through the airport by unidentified men as he attempted to flee the country after allegedly killing Shahzeb Khan, CCTV footage obtained by Express News shows.
The video came into limelight over 60 days after that fateful December night. It had previously been played in the Supreme Court of March 7, 2013.
The footage shows Shahrukh entering the Karachi airport. He is wearing a red cap that obscures his face.
He is escorted by a group of unidentified men who oversee as Shahrukh passes through a metal walk through gate and frisking by a security official.
Shahrukh was then stopped by a security guard of the airport, but a member of Shahrukh’s escort came to the rescue and he was escorted to the waiting lounge.
On December 25, 2012, Shahzeb was murdered allegedly by Shahrukh over a petty dispute near Mubarak Masjid, DHA, in Karachi.
His death sparked a movement on social media and triggered off a series of protests, condemnations by political parties and a suo motu notice by the chief justice.
Following the suo motu notice by the Supreme Court, Shahrukh’s name was entered in the Exit Control List (ECL), yet he managed to flee the country to Dubai via fake passport and documents. The passport had his name as Syed Shahrukh Jatoi.
