How Shahzeb Khan Was Killed? Complete Story

Shahzeb Khan on the wedding – 22nd december 2012

KARACHI: Shahzeb Khan didn’t even get time to change the clothes he wore to his sister’s valima. He was in his dark grey dress shirt and trousers when four 9mm bullets pierced through his car – a gleaming blue Swift which was an early birthday gift from his parents, and entered his body, eventually killing this popular 20 year old. The car which had somersaulted after the shooting near Mubarak Masjid in Karachi’s upmarket Defence area on Tuesday morning, now stands silent opposite the Darakhshan Police Station, a sad reminder of what the spoilt young sons of feudal landlords can do if they or their friends are challenged.

Ironically, Shahzeb Khan, the only son of his parents, was shot dead because of a small argument. He and his sister had just returned to their home in the Country Club Apartments from the wedding when a servant living in the building teased his sister. Shahzeb raised his voice against the harassment. But this did not sink in well with the harasser’s master, one Nawab Siraj Talpur. A fight broke out soon after, but Shahzeb’s father, DSP Aurangzeb, jumped in and quickly resolved the dispute, and the two men left on a good note.

Everything seemed normal. Soon after, Shahzeb decided to have tea with his friends. But the feud wasn’t over in Talpur’s mind till then. As an oblivious Shahzeb drove in his car near Mubarak Masjid, Talpur and his friend Shahrukh Jatoi followed him, along with Jatoi’s armed guards. Police say that in an act of cold-bloodedness, they then allegedly fired four bullets into Shahzeb’s car, leaving him severely injured, and eventually dead.

Soon enough after the incident, the two criminals and their families conveniently escaped to Sukkur. Despite the fact that Shahzeb’s father himself is a police officer, there is little the police have done so far to catch the murderers.

The devastated father of the young victim, Aurangzeb, clad in mourning black clothes, said taking lives in the city had become so easy for people who have strong political backgrounds and power.  “I had settled the dispute. Then why was my son killed like this. This is the brutal reign of the feudals. They don’t spare anyone.”

FIR 519 under murder case 302 has been registered at the Darakhshan Police Station against the two accused and their guards. Initially, the family had a hard time registering the case owing to political pressure coming from other end. However, Investigation officer Murtaza told The Express Tribune that a joint team under SI Chaudhry Nafees had been formed to look into the case. Some say this is a mere formality and nothing will come of this.

“We have requested the FIA to put the names of the accused on the ECL.” The officer said that such open use of arms across the city had become common. “For students and young adults, carrying guns has become a trend. Fights break out and the first thing children do is take out guns on one another. Parliamentarians and influentials travel in the city with their guards pointing guns at others and no one can do anything. Their children do the same.”

The tragic death of this media sciences student at Greenwich University sent shockwaves.  Loved ones who remember Shahzeb for his cute smile, created a page “In Memory of Shahzeb Khan” to seek justice for the act. In just thirteen hours since the page was created, 2,500 people had joined, with dozens leaving messages of ‘I’ll miss your smile, RIP and you were a real soldier, you stood up for the wronged.”

Close university friend Saad Jan, who had just arrived from visiting his friend’s grave said that Shahzeb was the person who would always stand up for others. Another friend, Fahad Wakeel said that he was always remembered for his good nature.

Shahzeb’s uncle, Jahanzaib said: “For him everything ended with a smile. Even when he was leaving from the valima, and I saw him for the last time, he smiled and joked with my daughters and went away, leaving us forever.”

The police suspect that the boys aged 20 or 23, are on their way to Sukkur. So far two people, alleged to be Jatoi’s guards, have been arrested. But even the police are now taking sides. SSP Investigation Faizullah Karejo said that the boys knew each other and were in a fight from before. “The parents had to intervene and everything was settled,” he said. “However, the boys started to fight again and Jatoi shot Shahzeb four times as he sat in his car to go to a friend’s house.”  He added that Jatoi was in the city for winter break and is studying in Malaysia.

  2. Shahrukh Jatoi is the son of rags to riches contractor Sikandar Jatoi. Mr Jatoi is renowned in the construction industry for his mastery at squeezing money out of govt departments. Most of his projects go way over budget and he always makes a killing regardless of how bad things go. His companies in this sector include

    Sardar M Ashraf D Baluch PVT Ltd – 7th Floor PRC Tower 32-A MT Khan Road Karachi 021-32723545

    Lilly International PVT Ltd – 5th Floor Panorama Center Raja Ghazanfar Ali Road Saddar Karachi 021-35612201-2

    Shah Rukh Engineers & Contractors PVT Ltd – 5th Floor Panorama Center Raja Ghazanfar Ali Road Saddar Karachi 021-35612201-2

    You will notice that one of the companies is named after his murderer son, Shahrukh Jatoi..the killer of Shahzeb Khan.

    He also owns numerous companies which he acquired through dubious deals with the govt. He owns cement companies, sugar mills, real estate projects, agricultural lands, food export business and many other enterprises.

    Sources close to the Jatois say that they and their associates are painting this issue as an anti-Sindhi thing and thereby cloak themselves in the security of otherwise sincere and uninformed (on this subject) rural people. This should definitely not be considered an anti-Sindhi thing and I am actually a little annoyed that ET ran the initial title it did….it gives the guilty something to play with…do not involve ethnicity in this…it is powerful vs ordinary, it is feudal vs citizen, it is injustice vs justice.

    The Jatois have a lot of friends and property in interior Sindh. It is not practical to expect that the police will sincerely carry out their job. On the basis of community a lot of accommodations are made in our poor country, and the police is nothing if not unworthy of trust.

    The citizens of Pakistan are smart and determined. With more information comes greater ability to punish the guilty. We know that a PPP leader said on TV last night that he was deported from Australia for assaulting his teacher. It still doesn’t hurt to contact the Anglican School of Brisbane where he attended to inform them that their student is a murderer and that if he was ever welcome back before, he shouldn’t be now. It may seem far fetched, but we live in a new age and Australia and the UAE can be shut off to this criminal if civil society acts in that direction. How long will he remain underground in interior SIndh? If CJP does his job and takes notice of this, then even interior Sindh can be made impossible for him. WE CAN MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF SHAHRUKH JATOI AND SIRAJ TALPUR. BAND TOGETHER AND MAKE IT HAPPEN!

  4. the shazeb beats the shahrukh when he was going for taking burger!

    then the shazeb sooory from him
    but the talpurs

    that we will kill u!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    thats the matter

    • there is no justification in the word which can justify to kill someone. Ask this question to your mother? if she can accept any justification if someone will kill you. I do not mean to be harsh but i am a mother too. this thing ” there is no justifcation in the word which can justify to kill or hit someone” we teach kids in kindergarten.

    • Lol woman learn how to speak and write English properly first then decide what to comment. I hope you open your eyes and understand a murder is a murder! If someone killed you, would your soul not want justice then? Think before you speak and stop being such an ignorant, money will not guard you, seek in Allah’s forgiveness. RIP Shahzeb Khan you are a true hero and judgement day is not far bro!

  5. “ALLAH” shahzeb khan ko jannat main jaga dain “Ameen”.I wish i could be in “Pakistan” and take part in to get justice to shahzeb khan but i and my family will always pray for him.”Inshallah”.

  6. This matter is same like americans wrong info about pakistanis, like they consider all muslims terrorists specially from pakistan so i don’t think they are wrong. if all landlords feudals are being called the criminals here then all the pakistanis would be terrorists??

  7. only one reason to stop all this, jus —– all families of feudals. they are occupying karachi. and we locals are going abroad for our future. we r leaving our home land just becoz we dont want to live in animals of interior pakistan… this jatoi and talpur families deserve beheading punishments.

    • No parent can do that ! its just a rumour ! nobody knows the real story still ! may be his parents being threatened of killing thier daughter or other family members , think what would u do in that case !

  15. ya kasay maa bap hay ager in logo nay pasa lay leya hay to is mashray ka muo par chanta mara hay atnay saray logo ke mahanat bakar ho gae is tarah to har pasay wala katal karay ga pasay ka dam par in ko har sorat sazaa hone chaya mot ke saza maray demag say nahe nekal ta us ka (V) banana or who muskarahat i hate him maray ALLAH is katel ko mot day day ameen

  16. You can cheat and escape from divine punishments and wrath in this world by virtue of your wealth, status and or influence but By God , in eternal life you will always repent and be punished forever. Life has momentary happiness and sense of achievement which will last for very short period of time. You will definitely meet your justified ends. I believe in ALLAH more than you believe in yourself.
