On 25th December 2012 he was shot dead by Shahrukh Jatoi, Nawab Siraj Ali Talpur, his brother Nawab Sajjad Ali Talpur and their servant Ghulam Murtaza Lashari when he was coming back after attending her sister's Walima. His sister was molested by Shahrukh Jatoi and his friend which resulted in fight between Shahrukh and Shahzeb. The issue was solved that time but after time Shahrukh traced Shahzeb and killed him by a fire.
Murder of Shahzeb khan
Initially after the murder of Shahzeb no arrests were made, which caused a significant social media movement demanding justice for Shahzeb Khan. On 7 January 2013 Siraj Talpur, Sajjad Talpur and Ghulam Murtaza Lashari were arrested in connection with the murder. Shahrukh Jatoi had fled to Dubai in the meantime, but was later arrested as well. Eyewitnesses then identified the suspects. After several changes of prosecution personnel, the charges were finally filed in March. In June 2013 the main accused, Shahrukh Jatoi and Siraj Talpur were sentenced to death. The fact that Jatoi was seen smiling into the cameras even at the time when the verdict was read, triggered a lot of negative reactions among the general public in Pakistan.
Shahzebs Sister reviewsShahzeb Khan's sister Parishay Khan, said that her brother Shahzeb Khan's case highlights how the justice can be manipulated in Pakistani courts. Various tactics have been used by the accused party to divert people from the main objective of the case, she told The News. She alleged that the powerful Jatoi family are "misleading people by stating that it is a fight against 'Sindhis' whereas it is simply a murder case". She added: "It is a unique case in the history of Pakistan, where a common man stood for his rights against the powerful and wealthy, supported by thousands of people from around the world, who seek to see a change in the system." Parishay said that it was important that the justice was done on merit in this case. "If justice is served it will help create an impact that will affect our upcoming generations and it will prove that no power is above the law, hopefully there will not be another 'Shahzeb' in future. My brother's killing was not merely a case of murder but in itself it was a terrorist act," Parishay told The News. Parishay states, "After Shahzeb's murder, I strongly felt unsafe in Karachi, my brother was killed in front of my house in the presence of several witnesses. The murderers must be punished as this will set an example for others.
