Shahrukh Jatoi, prime suspect in the Shahzeb Khan murder case, was shifted to Services Hospital Karachi on Wednesday for another medical examination.
Shahrukh Jatoi’s medical examination will be done under scrutiny of police personnel and and a carefully chosen doctors’ team.
An anti-terrorism court had earlier directed the medical superintendent of Services Hospital to constitute a medical board to conduct Shahrukh Jatoi’s ossification test on January 17.
The previous medical report was rejected as police surgeon Dr. Jalil Qadir was not eligible to pronounce Shahrukh as a minor between the age of 17 and 18. Dr. Jalil Qadir was then presented a show-cause notice and he fled the scene thereafter.
It was then announced that Professor Junaid Ashraf, Principal of Dow medical College, will head the board. Recent reports stated that Dr Farhat Mirza will now head the six-member board and conduct medical examination; other members include Dr Tariq, Dr Taqqi, Dr Saba, Dr Muzaffar and Dr Hamid Ali Paryal.
Inspection of hair and teeth will be done to determine Shahrukh Jatoi’s ‘much-debated’ age. A large number of police personnel will be present throughout the procedure.
