KARACHI: Shahrukh Jatoi - prime suspect in Shahzeb Khan’s murder case - has apparently surrendered himself to officials at Pakistan’s consulate in Dubai, Express News reported on Monday.

Shahrukh had reportedly escaped to Dubai after allegedly killing Shahzeb Khan in Karachi.

Shahzeb was murdered on December 25, 2012 over a petty dispute in Karachi’s Defence area allegedly by Shahrukh.

Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry took suo motu notice of the killing and ordered police to arrest the suspects.

Police managed to apprehend Siraj Talpur, his brother Sajjad Talpur and their cook. However, they failed to arrest Shahrukh.

In a bid to force Shahrukh to return to Pakistan, or turn himself in, police had taken his father, Sikander Jatoim into custody.

Police, who had sent a delegation to Dubai, had claimed that Shahrukh had been arrested in the emirates and would be repatriated as soon as legal formalities are fulfilled.

Syed Nasir Mehdi | 8 years ago | Reply His father got a lucrative job meaning he can millions. Murder's National ID card should have been sufficient to confirm the age of culprit. Again power fulls won and how much they spent to got him declared under age. Where are we going

@Adnan:

Dear Adnan bhai. We're hoping against hope that the justice will have the last laugh in Pakistan. Here are the two examples of Supreme Court's credibility. Ajmal Pahari, a renowned serial killer, who has killed about 100 people was bailed out couple of days ago and the reason they gave was, they did not find enough evidences and witnesses against him. Another case of white corolla if you can recall, what happened to that culprit who raped 45 sisters and killed one and made a confession in front of one and all?? In my eyes that case was worst than this. Where is he now, dear knows. What more do you expect from this so called Supreme Court/High Court. Honestly, if I am given a choice, I'd hang all the judges in the first place as they are the biggest hurdle between the people and the justice. I apologize if I have hurt anyone's feelings but this is the reality.
