Police on Friday disposed of the case of Kamran Faisal, an investigator of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) who was found dead in his official residence at Federal Lodges on Jan 18, a senior police official said.

The case was disposed of in the light of medical and foreign reports that came to the conclusion that Mr Faisal had committed suicide, he added.

Forensic experts declared in a report that he had not been murdered or tortured to death and that he had committed suicide.

The NAB got the FIR of the case registered after the family of Mr Faisal insisted that they believed he had been killed because he had no reason to end his life.

According to the forensic report, there were no marks of torture on the body of Mr Faisal and he had not consumed any poisonous substance.

The Supreme Court on Jan 23 took suo motu notice of the mysterious death of Mr Faisal, who had been investigating the Rs22 billion Rental Power Projects (RPPs) scam in which Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf is allegedly involved.

The investigator’s death came days after the court ordered the arrest of the prime minister and 15 others.

Dawn has learnt that the forensic team had found similarities between the findings of DNA test of Mr Faisal’s body and the rope used for the hanging.

A preliminary medical report had said there was no mark of injury on the body of Mr Faisal and that apparently he had committed a suicide. – Dawn.com
