During the hearing today, the applicant said that it was important to determine the cause of his death as there were multiple people claiming his inheritance and the circumstances leading to his death seemed to be mysterious.

The government counsel in the case said that the family does not want to conduct an autopsy out of respect for the deceased. The family has not cast their suspicions on anyone, he said.

A police report was also presented that stated that they could not identify the reasons behind the death without an internal examination of the body.

It is pertinent to mention here that Aamir Liaquat Hussain – who was also a PTI MNA from a Karachi constituency – was found unconscious at his house situated in Khudadad Colony of the metropolis. The 50-year-old was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
