Omar Sheikh, accused in the murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl, has been moved from Karachi to Lahore. The Sindh government has handed over Omar Sheikh to CTD Punjab.
According to CTD sources, Omar Sheikh has been transferred from Sindh to Punjab due to security concerns.
Omar Sheikh was convicted by an anti-terrorism court in 2002 for the murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl following his abduction in Karachi.
Earlier in February, the apex court had ordered the Sindh government to immediately shift Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh from his death cell to a regular prison cell.
The court further gave authorities two days to prepare a well-protected rest house for Sheikh where he could spend time with his family members, under certain restrictions.
