Aamir Liaquat autopsy: Body to be exhumed on June 23

KARACHI: Famous televangelist and PTI MNA Aamir Liaquat’s body will be exhumed on Thursday morning (June 23), a notification issued by the Sindh health department said on Tuesday.

The announcement comes in response to court orders for the exhumation of Hussain’s body for an autopsy so a cause of death can be ascertained. The sudden death of the televangelist on June 9 had sent shock waves across the country.

A six-member medical board has been formed for the autopsy.  Police surgeon Dr Samia will head the board.

Additional police surgeon Shahid Nizam, Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre’s Forensics Medicine Head of the Department Pervaiz Makhdoom, medico-legal officer Dr Areeb Baqai, forensic expert Dr Hari Ram and Dr Gulzar Ali are part of the medical board.

Court approves plea seeking autopsy

The judicial magistrate (East) in Karachi on Saturday approved a petition seeking the autopsy of the anchorperson.

A petition was filed stating that Hussain’s sudden death has raised suspicions among his fans and it is suspected that he was killed over a property dispute.

The petitioner requested the court to form a special board for the exhumation and autopsy of Hussain, saying that identifying the cause of his death was necessary.

In its order, the court said that Liaquat’s family — the “heirs of his grave” — have maintained that conducting the anchorperson’s post-mortem would violate the sanctity of his grave.

But the court said that if the death is suspicious and there is a fear that a crime might have been committed, then the law will have to take its course.

Responding to the order, Hussain’s former wife Dr Bushra Iqbal raised several questions on performing an autopsy on Hussain.

She urged fans to be vocal in opposing the autopsy as it “is a painful procedure for dead people and Islam doesn’t allow it”.
