ISLAMABAD - Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Tuesday took notice of shifting of Shahrukh Jatoi and two accused from jail to hospital, and called report from the Inspector-General Jails, Sindh within 24 hours.

Jaoti and other accused were allegedly involved in the killing of Shahzeb Khan, a 20-year-old, who was shot dead in Karachi on the night between December 24 and 25, 2012, when he was returning home after attending a wedding ceremony with his sister in the Country Club Apartments, Karachi.

Shahrukh Jatoi and the two co-accused– Siraj Talpur and Sajjad Talpur – were taken into custody by the Islamabad police from the Supreme Court premises after the Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar order for their arrest.

The apex court had also set aside their acquittal by a trial court and removal of anti-terrorism charges by the Sindh High Court (SHC).

The civil society activists had challenged the SHC’s November 28, 2017, order that had set aside Anti-Terrorism Court order by holding that the murder case did not fall in the jurisdiction of the Anti-Terrorism Act.

The SHC’s November 28, 2017 order disregarded the apex court order of February 22, 2013.

Jatoi was shifted to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre on February 10.

According to the director of the hospital, Dr Seemin Jamali, Jatoi was shifted to the hospital after complaints of back pain.
