Aamir Liaquat’s autopsy: Court orders post-mortem

Heirs don’t suspect any foul play; autopsy would hurt their father’s soul, says public prosecutor

Karachi’s Judicial Magistrate on Saturday ordered the authorities to conduct the post-mortem of deceased MNA Aamir Liaquat Hussain.

Earlier after the hearing, the court reversed the previous judgment regarding the autopsy of 50 years old Aamir Liaquat Hussain. The public prosecutor Sajjad Ali Dashti informed the court that the heirs don’t want an autopsy as it would hurt their father’s soul. The heirs also told the court that they do not suspect any foul play in the death.

Police presented a report in the court in which it was stated that the police surgeon couldn’t ascertain the cause of death as that would require an autopsy.

After hearing the arguments from both sides, the court said that it had reversed its decision that would be announced soon; that was later announced that the autopsy be conducted.

The court’s proceedings were attended by Aamir Liaquat Hussain’s heirs, the legal team of the provincial government and police officials.

The court had fixed the plea for hearing for today morning and after the preliminary hearing notices were issued to the legal heirs of the deceased lawmaker and famous televangelist Aamir Liaquat Hussain directing them to appear before the court in person or through a lawyer.

On Friday, a petition was filed in the court of judicial magistrate (East) Judge Wazir Hussain Memon by a resident of Karachi named Abdul Ahad. The petitioner in his application had filed in the court in which he stated that the refusal of post-mortem by the deceased’s heirs wasn’t legal/valid ground.

The petitioner, in his petition, has said that as per past judgments reasonable suspicion is considered to be sufficient to ascertain the actual cause of death. He also requested the court to issue a directive to the concerned provincial department to formulate a medical board for autopsy as well as Hussain’s samples should be sent to the Punjab Forensic Science Agency for examination.

In the plea, the state, East district SSP and brigade police station SHO have been nominated as respondents.
