Nazim Jokhio's tortured body was found in Memon Goth, a day after he filmed a group of foreigners hunting the endangered houbara bustard in the area.


The Sindh High Court (SHC) disallowed the arguments by the Sindh Advocate General after the withdrawal of contempt of the court request of the Member National Assembly, Jam Abdul Karim, nominated in the Nazim Jokhio murder case, against the Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid and Sindh Governor Imran Ismail.

A hearing was held on a miscellaneous request by MNA Jam Abdul Karim by the two-member bench led by Justice Muhammad Iqbal Kalhoro. The court refused to hear the arguments of Sindh Advocate General.

Justice Kalhoro remarked, "We cannot issue notices on the request. If there is any problem, file a new application. We have approved a security guarantee; let the first accused come.

If there is an arrest, then file a court application. If court orders are not processed, then we will see. How do we issue contempt notices when nothing happened?"

In the case the stand was adopted that Jam Abdul Karim has been granted protective bail on March 25. Jam says, he wants to surrender by appearing in the trial court.
