ISLAMABAD: Islamabad police are reported to have received the chemical examination (forensic) report on the death of Kamran Faisal, a NAB official who was investigating the rental power project case. The report, it is learnt, has declared that the officer committed suicide.
But Abdul Hameed, father of deceased Kamran Faisal, is said to have rejected the report and plans to challenge it in the Supreme Court on Monday. Relevant police officers, when contacted by Dawn, refused to confirm or deny to have received the report.
A police officer requesting anonymity said: “The report has found broken neck bones indicating suicide. According to the report, there is no mark of torture or wound on the body of the deceased; but it has been confirmed that his eyes popped out which shows that he died of suffocation.
“The report also confirms that Kamran Faisal was mentally prepared for suicide because he did not eat anything for nine hours. He knew that his stomach should be empty because he was expecting his body to be recovered several hours after his death,” the officer said.
“The report also says that the deceased was suffering from severe depression and was taking anti-depression medicines,” he said.
An officer of the Secretariat Police Station, who did not want to be named, said that police had learnt that a man named Sajid was sharing a room with Kamran Faisal in the Federal Lodges and he had gone on leave only a couple of days before the incident and he had not returned so far.
“We have learnt that the report has confirmed the death to be a case of suicide. So we are confused about further interrogation. Sajid will be interrogated on instructions from senior police officers,” he said.
A two-member bench of the Supreme Court comprising Justice Jawad S. Khawaja and Justice Khilji Arif has issued notices to NAB chairman, Inspector General of Police, Islamabad, and Medical Superintendent of Polyclinic Hospital and sought relevant records. The court will resume hearing of the case on Monday.
