Pak PM corruption case officer's death termed 'suicide'

Islamabad, Jan. 19 (ANI): National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officer Kamran Faisal's death has been termed as suicide in his initial post mortem report.

A five-panel team of doctors said that the death was a suicide because no resistance or torture marks were found on his body, the Express News reports.

According to the Express Tribune, the team has sent samples to the forensic lab for further investigations.

The final forensic report of Faisal's death will be compiled in one week, which will reveal whether he took any anti-depressants pills that led to his suicide.

Faisal's family has rejected the report insisting that he was murdered and he had torture marks on his body.

Faisal, who was the assistant director at the bureau, was found hanging from the ceiling fan in his room at the federal lodge number 2 on Friday.

He was one of the officers looking into alleged kickbacks by Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf in transactions involving rental power plants when he was power minister, the report added. (ANI)
