Witness identified Siraj Talpur as killer; Shahrukh Jatoi still on the run

KARACHI: An eyewitness of Shahzeb Khan’s murder said that Siraj Talpur opened fire on the victim Shahzeb and shot him dead, reported Aaj News Wednesday.

During the case hearing today, two eye witnesses were presented and recorded statements before the investigation officer.

However, the police advised the media not to disclose the witnesses names due to security reasons.

All the three accused including Siraj Talpur, Sajjad Talpur and Ghulam Murtaza Lashari were arrested on January 5 from Talpur House Morro, Sindh.

Five people were nominated in the FIR of the case, out of which three have been arrested while Shahrukh Jatoi and his father Sikandar are still on the run.

Shahzeb’s father, DSP Aurangzeb Khan said that Siraj was identified when he was paraded in front of the eye-witnesses. He said that the same people will also identify Shahrukh Jatoi when he is paraded in front of them.

Speculations are that the Jatoi family is using powerful sources to shift all the blame on Siraj Talpur so that Shahrukh Jatoi might escape hard punishment.

Meanwhile, Shahrukh Jatoi who is still at large was reported to have been found in Dubai, but sources within Dubai police have denied these reports.
