Shahrukh Jatoi moves SHC against death sentence


Lawyers of Shahrukh Jatoi on Wednesday filed an appeal in the Sindh High Court against the death sentence given to him by the anti-terrorism court on June 7.

The ATC had allowed Jatoi’s lawyers seven days to appeal against the verdict.

Jatoi’s lawyers claimed that the eyewitnesses’ statements did not match earlier statements and that the court should review its verdict.

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.

The Talpur brothers are also appealing their conviction at the Sindh High Court. Advocate Mehmood Qureshi filed an appeal on their behalf on Monday

Qureshi argued that the prosecution’s story is based on dishonesty and mala fide, as it was based on ‘second’ version given by the complainant, DSP Aurangzeb Khan, who is also the victim’s father.


  1. I can not really understand what for this convict of death sentence is making a victory sign. Is this what he wanted or is he sure of getting this verdict overturned.

  2. I believe that if he is gulity then Death is an easy way out for him as the pain he has given to the victims parents and family will continue for years and years to come while his pain will dimiish with his death. He should be set as an example for others who dare not commit a crime like he did
