Sindh Home Ministry has reinstated Malir Jail Superintendent who was suspended by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar over facilities provided to death row prisoner Shahrukh Jatoi.
The official was reinstated after the court accepted his apology, the ministry said. Justice Nisar visited the prison cell of Shahrukh Jatoi at the Landhi Jail on Saturday expressing anger at the facilities being provided to the convict.
Jatoi, along with Siraj Talpur and others, is a convict in the Shahzeb Khan murder case.
The chief justice was annoyed at the facilities being provided to Jatoi at the C-Class prison and questioned how someone convicted in a murder case could be allowed such facilities.
CJP Nisar ordered the prison authorities to transfer Jatoi to the death cell and summoned a report from the IG Prisons, besides instructing him to remove the superintendent from his position.Later, Jatoi was shifted to the death cell at the Central Jail.
