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.
