Shahrukh Jatoi, prime suspect in the murder of Shahzeb Khan, is likely to be in Karachi police custody within 10 days, as his visa is due to expire on January 21, The Express Tribune learned on Friday.
A police team comprising DIG Finance Dost Ali Baloch and SSP Niaz Khosa had left for Dubai after the anti-terrorism court issued an arrest warrant for Shahrukh on Monday, where they met with Interpol officials and UAE authorities including Dubai police.
A search notice to stop Shahrukh Jatoi’s possible escape to another country from Dubai without the permission of Pakistani government or law enforcement has already been issued by Interpol.
On Friday, Karachi police officials who were in Dubai returned home after completing necessary legal procedures. “We have returned as the task of ensuring Shahrukh’s arrest by involving the UAE authorities and Interpol was achieved,” a senior officer privy to the matter told The Express Tribune. “It is likely that we might go again to receive him but that will be the UAE authorities’ call.”
“Shahrukh Jatoi will have to face deportation anyway following the expiry of his visa on January 21,” said the senior official.
