Justice for Shahzeb Khan
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Twenty-year-old Shahzeb Khan, had been gunned down in Karachi, Pakistan on the night of December 24, 2012, when he was returning home along with his sister after attending a wedding.
The episode started with the harassment of the victim’s sister. She stated in the court that the servant of the accused had hurled indecent remarks at her as she was about to enter her 11th-floor apartment upon her return from a wedding. The girl’s brother Shahzeb Khan had an altercation with the servant, which led to a quarrel between him and the accused persons.
Shortly after the altercation, the accused Sharukh Jatoi, along with other two friends, and servant intercepted the victim and brutally shot him dead
The honourable court awarded the death sentence to the accused Sharukh Jatoi, co-accused Nawab Siraj Talpur and landed life imprisonment to the accused’s friend and his servant for their involvement in the murder, but as expected, the death sentences were overturned on December 23, 2017, by allowing accused released and exonerated from all charges, which everybody knows would be the result of coercion and undue influence on the deceased family as well as the judiciary.
The court began retrial of the case as a result of a petition filed by the brave and concerned members of civil society condemning the court assailing the very verdict that paved the way for the convicts to walk free after obtaining bail in the murder case. I request all global community stand together by signing the petition to support a fair trial for the victim.
