Felon Shahrukh Jatoi was shifted back to prison on Monday from a private hospital where he was residing for the past numerous months.
Jatoi was sentenced to death by an anti-terrorism court in the 2012 Shahzeb murder case, but his sentence was later altered to life imprisonment.
Sindh’s Prison Department confirmed that he was shifted to Karachi Central Jail, according to a newspaper report.
The report added that Jatoi was moved to a private hospital in Punjab Colony nearly eight months prior. The move reportedly was made in an alleged desecration of procedures for an admission.
Shahrukh Jatoi was incriminated for the murder of Shahzeb in Defense Housing Authority in December 2012. The anti-terrorism court had sentenced him to death a year later in 2013.
However, the complainant had ‘absolved’ Jatoi according to the Qisas and Diyat law, in 2017. But the Supreme Court took note of the incident. Afterwards, the Sindh High Court changed the death sentence to life imprisonment instead.
According to the newspaper report, Jatoi had been living a luxurious life in prison. The then supreme court chief justice Saqib Nisar paid him a surprise visit and expressed reservations over his luxurious living conditions.
