KARACHI: Two eye witnesses Saturday identified the prime suspect of Shahzeb Khan murder in the magisterial court of southern district saying they saw the suspect chasing and shooting Khan.

Shahrukh Jatoi, the main accused of Khan’s murder, was brought to the court of magistrate Waqar Ahmad Soomro for the identification by the two witnesses. Aashiq and Ashghar were the two eyewitnesses who had to identify Jatoi.

The police brought Jatoi thrice for the identification parade for the witnesses along with the three other fake suspects and all the three times both the witnesses recognized Jatoi.

The witnesses in their identical statements told the court that they saw the accused firing at the Khan car and when the car overturned he also stopped by and again fired inside the overturned car.

Jatoi, however, told the magistrate that the police took him to the Boat Basin Police Station at 6 Friday evening where he was shown to the witnesses who also held a brief discussion with him.

The magistrate recorded the Jatoi claim. Legal experts said that the claim might weaken the case against the accused as the defence might take advantage of the assertion.
