Extermism in Pakistan
Who was Shahzab and why he was murderd?
Twenty-year old Shahzeb Khan was in dark grey shirt and trousers, the clothes he wore to the Valima of her sister when 9mm bullets pierced through his car and entered his body, which eventually killed him. He was the only son of his parents. That was December 25, 2012. The incident was a result of a small argument. Shahzeb Khan raised his voice when his sister was teased by a servant of saraj talpur. They just arrived from the wedding reception. But the issue was resolved by Shahzaib,s father. Khan left the house for a tea with friends later. Talpur and his friend Shahrukh Jatoi and their guards followed him. They fired bullets into Khan’s car, and left him severely injured, and eventually, dead. The suspects conveniently escaped with their families, after the incident.
Even Khan’s father who is with the police, found that they can do very little to catch them. That is the result when the spoiled young son of influential landlords are challenged. Shahzeb Khan’s father Aurangzeb, said that taking lives had been easy for people with power and strong political backgrounds. Even if he had settled the dispute, his only son was still killed – a proof that influential people do not spare anyone and make it difficult for the police to catch the suspects.
It is now a trend for young adults to carry guns while they travel, and point them to anyone, when triggered. Parliamentarians cannot do anything as their armed guards do the same. Friends of Khan remember him as a young man who is ready to seek justice for others. He always ended up something with a smile. His uncle Jahanzaib said that the last time he saw him, he joked with his daughters then went away, leaving them forever.
Why there was no FIR for six days?
The killers of shahzaib khan seemd like that they did a good thing so that there should be no FIR against them. But the reality is different. They did not do anything good but they killed a young boy named Shazaib due to little arguments between them. Shazib fateher is a DSP and it is a highly ranked post in police departement but no one was ready to write a FIR against the killers. The reason is because the killers bolngs to a landlord and very rich families. They are also supported by some political parties also. Even though Shahzaib was the son of a serving DSP, the FIR could only be lodged on the intervention of an MNA related to Shahzaib’s father. Can this be taken as an example of a dysfunctional state where killers can get away so easily? And then a MNA from a leading party in karachi MQM asked the police to write the FIR against the killers of SHAHZAIB khan.
SUpreme court Sou Moto action:
Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry has taken suo moto notice of Shahzaib murder case.The CJ also called the IG Sindh on 4th January.He also asked whether the FIR was lodged and what were the reason the killers were not arrested. The Supreme Court gave concerned authorities 24 hours to arrest suspects in Shahzeb Khan’s murder case and ordered for a challan of the same to be submitted to the registrar office. A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry is hearing the case in which 20-year-old Shahzeb was killed over a small argument allegedly by feudals.
The first hearing of the suo motu notice taken by the Supreme Court on Shahzeb Khan’s murder was on 7th january. Earlier during the hearing, the chief justice warned concerned authorities to arrest Shahzeb Khan’s murderers by evening, or risk losing their jobs. The chief justice, referring to a previous case, said: “The IG was saved in the last case but tell him that in this case, he will not be pardoned,” adding that he should have appeared in person.
Speaking to the investigation officer, he said: “You have already spoiled a case before and are about to do it again.” Justice Chaudhry said that all delays in progress of the case were attempts at pushing the case to the sidelines. According to reports, influential people were standing in the way of the investigation and the arrest of the suspects, upon which the chief justice had taken a suo motu notice. Police have failed to arrest any of the accused nominated in the murder of Shahzeb, who was shot dead near his home in Defence last week. A popular student and son of DSP Aurangzaib, Shahzeb’s murder created an uproar in civil society.
Role of media and public in Shahzaib case:
Political parties joined hands with members of civil society organisations outside the Karachi Press Club to demand that the killers of Shahzaib Khan a young man allegedly murdered by men from a influential family be brought to justice. Hundreds took part in the demonstration that brought together people from various walks of life. Raza Haroon, Wasay Jalil and other members of the MQM Rabita Committee joined protesters in their call to arrest the suspects who remained at large. Addressing the demonstrators who held playcards and banners inscribed with slogans, the MQM leaders said the murderers were not being arrested as they ‘belonged to feudal families’.Raza Haroon said that the murder of Shahzeb was a single incident, but such heinous crimes would continue to take place if concrete action was not taken.
MNA Waseem Akhtar, Khuwaja Sohail, Nadia Gabol, MPA Muqeem Alam and others also took part in the demonstration. MQM Chief Altaf Hussain demanded the immediate arrest of the killers of Shahzaib Khan and said it was unfortunate that these criminals had not been brought to justice simply because they belonged to influential families. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf was also in full force at the demonstration. Members of the party held up a banner which read, “Fight for Shahzaib today and protect your own children tomorrow.” The common people from all over the Pakistan were also there for justice against the shahzaib case. They did a lot of things aginst the killers and demanded the high command of the country to give the justice to Shahzaib and his family.
Steps taken after supreme court action:
After taking the action of supreme court the police departement was in action and they start their action against the killers of shahzaib khan. They set the raids to arest the killers. They arrest the 2 main persons named siraj talpor and lashari but they were unable to arrest the main killer shahrukh jattoi. The police siezed the houses and foctories of the jatoi family but could not arrest them. Then after some days police arrested the father of shahrukh jatoi named as sikander jatoi. Within all this time sikander jatoi sent his son ahahrukh jatoi to UAE. And when shah rukh jatoi came to know that his father has been arrested in pakistan so he surenederd himself infront of UAE police and then he was brought back to pakistan. The jatoi and talpor family were declared as ECL. Then wht was the reason that shah rukh reached to Dubai and who was the responsible person for this?
Shah Rukh father,s role:
Now there was a lot of role of shah rukh fatehr to sent his son to dubai. He was a very rich person and owner of many factories too. He first gave his pistol to hia son which means that he was set free from his father,s side to do anything. When shah rukh killed shahzaib khan his father sent him to UAE as soon as he can. How he did this while the SHAH RUKH name was in ECL. this shows that he was a power full elite and he has the capacity to do anything which is illegal. Sikander jatoi use the money as water and he feed up all the departements with their willing money. And when sikander jatoi wa sbrought in media in fornt of all pakistans he said that my son did not do anything. He was in dubai when the shahzaib was murdered. But when shah rukh was arrested and brought to pakistan his father was prooven as a layer.
How Shah Rukh Reached Dubai While His Name Was In ECL?
Now it is very interesting point that how the main suspect in shah zaib khan case the killer shah rukh jatoi reached to Dubai while hi sname was listed in the ECL? The reality is that his father did all this. He give money to our pasport issuers and then at the airport workers and officers. And shahrukh reached to Dubai on some one else pasport. This shows that all of our departements are corrupt and enybody who have money has the ability to do anything either legal or illegal. Under Age Issue For Shah Rukh Jatoi:
The medical report of Shahrukh Jatoi stated that he is an adult and aged between 17 and 18 while he is aged 17 years and one month according to his passport, sources told. Shahrukh Jatao was presented before the police surgeon’s office in Karachi on Monday upon court orders for the verification of his age by carrying out X-ray of different parts of his body. Additional Surgeon Dr Ejaz Ahmed shifted Shahrukh Jatoi to the Civil Hospital for the X-ray, where the tests were carried out under the supervision of Police Surgeon Dr Jalil. Earlier, a physical examination of Shahrukh Jatoi was also carried out. Now this is another darama in shah zaib kahn murder case that the main suspect shah rukh jatoi is under age. Therefore his case was refered to seccion court insted of the insdad e dehshat gardi court. What is this? Is this a new darama to save the shah rukh jatoi?
Shah Rukh Sent To Juvenile jail:
The court has ordered to send Shahrukh Jatoi ,the key accused in Shahzeb Khan murder case, to Juvenile (Bacha) Jail till the 29th of January, Saach. The court issued this order on Saturday. According to media reports a medical report declared Shahrukh Jatoi to be under-18 and that’s why the court ordered to send him to bacha jail. The weapon of murder has also been discovered from Shahrukh Jatoi. The court also ordered to send the other four accused Siraj Talpur, Sajjad Talpur, and Ghulam Murtaza Lashari to Central Jail.
Police is Doing Underpressure The Eye Wittneses Of Shah Zaib Khan Case: In shahzaib khanzada a great anchor in expresss news it is explored that the police is under pressurised the eye wittneses of shah zaib case. The police goes to the houses of the eye witneses and asked them to say the same thing that we told you. Police asked them not to recognized the car that was used by the jatoi and they showed them another car and asked that you should recognize this car that this car was there where shah zaib was killed.
After going through this shah zaib khan case i have concluded some things.
·Is the law of pakistan is so weak?
·Is the law not equal for rich and poor?
·Is mostly departements of Pakistan are corrupt?
·Either it is the duty of only supreme court to take the action against all the cases?
After analysis this issue i would like to say that in our country supreme court is only the one institution that is doing something for the people and for the country. But it is not the duty of only supreme court to fullfill all the duties of other departements also. To arrest the killers and all other wrong doimd persons is the duty of the police departemen. But the police don,t want to do anything untill there is no involvement of the supreme court in the case. the duty of supreme court iss only to provide the justice to the people and to the institutions but not to areest the culprits. All the departements are free to performe thier duties and have the ability too but the reason is this that the most departements are corrupt and they do the things only for those who feed them well.
