ISLAMABAD: The government has formed a judicial commission to investigate the death of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) official Kamran Faisal, Express News reported on Sunday.
Faisal – who was looking into alleged kickbacks by the premier in transactions involving rental power plants – was found hanging from the ceiling of a government hostel room on January 18.
His death came 24 hours after the NAB chief told the Supreme Court that it did not have enough evidence to arrest Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, as directed by the court last week.
The deceased’s father had requested for this judicial inquiry.
The commission, headed by Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal, has two weeks time to submit its findings.
A five-member medical board, which conducted Faisal’s autopsy, and the Secretariat police had said that the NAB officer’s death was an apparent case of suicide and refuted claims that any torture marks were found on his body.
