ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar took notice on Tuesday of Shahrukh Jatoi, the main accused in the Shahzeb Khan murder case, being shifted to hospital after his bail was rejected by the top court.

The CJP has called for a report from Sindh IGP as well as the IG Jails Sindh within 24 hours in this regard.

Shahrukh was shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC) on February 10.

‘Backache’ takes Sharukh Jatoi back in hospital

According to the director of the hospital, Dr Seemin Jamali, Shahrukh was shifted to the hospital after complaints of back pain.

A statement can only be issued once the final report arrives, Dr Jamali said. Different tests of the suspect will be conducted, she added.

On February 1, the Supreme Court ordered arrest of Shahrukh 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 Justice Nisar.

    It’s an open secret that Shahrukh Jatoi is taken to the hospital under false pretexts, from where he goes home. I’m glad the CJP has taken notice of this nonsense.Recommend

    delima of medical science is that Ac.Lumbago ( back pain ) cannot be proved even after the most advance medical investigations , if the patient complains that he has the pain , no doctor or court can say for certainty that it is not true , this is most common diagnosis the world over given by doctors to the malingerers , some legislation must be done to avoid such fraudulent practices , of course , in the absence of any medical solid evidence of some pathology in the spine , such prisoners must not be given any favours . .Recommend

    CJP takes notice… what does this mean? Surely, someone in authority allowed this to happen. So, either our laws are so feeble that jailed people can simply walk out, or,the person in authority does not care. Recommend

    Pakistan should create a hospital wing in every jail centre to accommodate VIP’s otherwise the rich offenders find a way to end up in hospitals enjoying the comforts he or she is accustomed to. The Courts understand it but are helpless as the abuse continue. Recommend
