KARACHI: The Malir Court in Karachi has cancelled the bails of five suspects who had helped Shahrukh Jataoi escape abroad, while protective bails of three, including Sharukh Jatoi’s cousin Nawab Jataoi, have been approved, Express News reported.

The court has dismissed bail requests of the owner of the travel agency Abu Bakar Zakria, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) protocol officer Wasih Akhtar, Khurram Muhammad, Nawab Jataoi and Salman Ali Shah.

The suspects refused to be arrested after the court’s decision.

Three of the suspects took shelter in the Malir Bar building, while discussions for their arrest are still going on.

The police has so far managed to arrest just one suspect, Salman Shah.

Shahzeb was killed by Shahrukh Jatoi near Mubarak Masjid in DHA. The killing resulted from a small argument he had with Nawab Siraj Talpur, when the latter’s servant verbally harassed his sister. Talpur and his friend, Jatoi, allegedly followed Shahzeb and shot him.
