Pakistani murder suspect turns himself in to Dubai consulate

A murder suspect wanted in Karachi for shooting a 20-year-old gives himself up in Dubai.

DUBAI // A murder suspect is in police custody after turning himself in to the Pakistan Consulate.

Shahrukh Jatoi is wanted by detectives in Pakistan for his alleged involvement in the shooting of Shahzeb Khan, 20, in Karachi on December 24.

"He handed himself in at about 6pm on Monday," said a consulate official. "Mr Jatoi has been transferred to Dubai Police custody and we have also completed the necessary paperwork to allow for his transfer back to Pakistan.

"At this stage we do not know when that is likely to happen as we are waiting for Dubai Police to complete their procedures."

Mr Jatoi is likely to be flown back to Pakistan on the first available flight once local officers have completed their work.

"At the time of Mr Jatoi's surrender, senior superintendent of Sindh police, Niaz Khoso, was in the consulate, the official said. "A formal arrest was not made as Mr Jatoi came in willingly."

Pakistan media reported that Mr Jatoi's father, Sikander, an influential businessman, was arrested on suspicion of helping his son flee the country.

The victim was the son of a senior police officer in Pakistan. He was killed as he returned home after attending a wedding with his sister.

Mr Jatoi's arrest was ordered by Pakistan's Supreme Court.

What is Diwali?

The Hindu festival is at once a celebration of the autumn harvest and the triumph of good over evil, as outlined in the Ramayana.

According to the Sanskrit epic, penned by the sage Valmiki, Diwali marks the time that the exiled king Rama – a mortal with superhuman powers – returned home to the city of Ayodhya with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman, after vanquishing the 10-headed demon Ravana and conquering his kingdom of Lanka. The people of Ayodhya are believed to have lit thousands of earthen lamps to illuminate the city and to guide the royal family home.

In its current iteration, Diwali is celebrated with a puja to welcome the goodness of prosperity Lakshmi (an incarnation of Sita) into the home, which is decorated with diyas (oil lamps) or fairy lights and rangoli designs with coloured powder. Fireworks light up the sky in some parts of the word, and sweetmeats are made (or bought) by most households. It is customary to get new clothes stitched, and visit friends and family to exchange gifts and greetings.

What is Diwali?

The Hindu festival is at once a celebration of the autumn harvest and the triumph of good over evil, as outlined in the Ramayana.

According to the Sanskrit epic, penned by the sage Valmiki, Diwali marks the time that the exiled king Rama – a mortal with superhuman powers – returned home to the city of Ayodhya with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman, after vanquishing the 10-headed demon Ravana and conquering his kingdom of Lanka. The people of Ayodhya are believed to have lit thousands of earthen lamps to illuminate the city and to guide the royal family home.

In its current iteration, Diwali is celebrated with a puja to welcome the goodness of prosperity Lakshmi (an incarnation of Sita) into the home, which is decorated with diyas (oil lamps) or fairy lights and rangoli designs with coloured powder. Fireworks light up the sky in some parts of the word, and sweetmeats are made (or bought) by most households. It is customary to get new clothes stitched, and visit friends and family to exchange gifts and greetings.
