KARACHI: Shahrukh Jatoi and Siraj Talpur, main suspects in the Shahzeb Khan murder case, were handed death sentences by an ATC on Friday, Express News reported.
The verdict of the murder case, which has been going on a daily basis at the anti-terrorism courts, was announced today.
ATC judge, Ghulam Mustafa Memon, issued the judgement.
The other two suspects, Sajjad Talpur and Ghulam Murtaza Lashari, were awarded life sentences.
Police, as soon as the verdict was announced, had taken the four offenders to jail. However, the court has now called them back as they had not signed official documents.
Jatoi’s lawyer said he is not satisfied with the verdict and will review appeal against it. The ATC has given them seven days time to file review request.
On December 25, last year, Shahzeb Khan, 20, was gunned down by Shahrukh Jatoi, who was accompanied by his friends, Siraj and Sajjad Talpur. The young men had a fight after the Talpur’s servant, Ghulam Murtaza Lashari, teased Shahzeb’s sister.
