A district and session court on Saturday ordered police to exhume the body of renowned TV personality Aamir Liaquat Hussain, who died at his Karachi home days before, after his family refused to allow an autopsy.
During today’s hearing, the applicant stated that it was critical to determine the cause of his death because there were multiple people claiming his inheritance and the circumstances cause of his death appeared mysterious.
According to the government’s counsel in the case, the family does not want to conduct an autopsy out of respect for the deceased. He stated that the family has not cast any suspicions on anyone.
A police report was also presented, stating that without an internal examination of the body, they could not determine the cause of death.
It is worth noting here that Aamir Liaquat Hussain, a PTI MNA from a Karachi constituency, was discovered unconscious at his home in the city’s Khudadad Colony. The 50-year-old was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead.
The police said earlier today that Aamir’s body had been handed over to his family following a preliminary examination and submission of a report by the police surgeon. While police attempted to conduct an autopsy on the body, Liaquat’s family refused to have a post-mortem examination.
The case was then referred to a judicial magistrate in Karachi. According to police, a judicial magistrate visited the morgue and allowed the body’s transfer to the heirs.
