ISLAMABAD: During Monday's hearing of the Kamran Faisal case, the police informed the court that it had not received the forensic report on the death of the NAB official investigating the rental power projects case and requested for more time in that regard, DawnNews reported.

A two-judge bench of the apex court comprising Justice Jawwad S. Khawaja and Justice Khilji Arif Hussain heard the case today.

The bench was assigned the task by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to look into the circumstances leading to the death of the NAB investigator who was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his residence in Federal Lodges, Islamabad, on Jan 18.

Also during today’s hearing, doctors from the Polyclinic Hospital told the bench that there were still waiting for the forensic report.

Subsequently, the bench exempted the team of doctors from the hospital from court appearances and adjourned the case's hearing to Feb 19.

In January, it was reported that the Islamabad police had received the forensic report on Faisal’s death. The report, it was learnt, had declared that the officer had committed suicide.

However, later on Feb 2, a team of the Punjab Forensic Science Agency had collected specimens from Faisal’s body after it was exhumed from his grave in Mian Channu.

At the time, head of the forensic team, Rana Naseer, had stated that the body was exhumed to carry out “an independent examination”.

“The agency sought exhumation of the body after a controversy was developed on the initial post-mortem report,” Naseer had said.

Another official had said that the body was exhumed to determine whether Faisal had committed suicide or had been murdered.
