Pak PM probe official committed suicide

Police tells SC

A senior anti-graft investigator, who was found dead in mysterious circumstances while probing corruption charges against Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, had apparently committed suicide, Pakistani police has told the Supreme Court.

Officials of Islamabad Police submitted an initial investigation report regarding the death of Kamran Faisal, an assistant director of the National Accountability Bureau, to the Supreme Court on Saturday.

The report, based on an autopsy, "revealed suicide as cause of the death", state-run Radio Pakistan reported.

Earlier this week, Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry formed a two-judge bench to investigate Faisal's death after his colleagues and relatives alleged he was murdered.

The bench subsequently issued notices to NAB Chairman Fasih Bokhari and senior officials of Islamabad Police and a state-run hospital to provide information regarding the death.
