KARACHI: Former model and journalist Quratulain Ali Khan was found dead at her Karachi apartment on Saturday.

She is believed to have committed suicide. District South SSP Omar Shahid Hamid told The Express Tribune that the one-time model had suffocated to death after setting some of her book ablaze. While Hamid ruled out foul play, he said a probe would continue.

Khan was found dead after neighbours noted smoke rising from her apartment and alerted police. The deceased’s body was then sent from the Qasr-e-Zainab building in the city’s red zone to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC). Doctors at the hospital also confirmed that the former model had suffocated to death.
