Shahzeb murder case: Shahrukh Jatoi released on bail
On February 1 Supreme Court ordered arrest of Jatoi and two co-accused in the Shahzeb murder case after setting aside their acquittal by a trial court and removal of anti-terrorism charges by the Sindh High Court.
Following the hearing, the accused were taken into custody by the Islamabad police after the verdict was read out by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar.
Interestingly, the three-judge special bench, headed by the CJP and comprising Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and Justice Maqbool Baqir also converted the case into a suo motu.
