ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad Secretariat Police Station registered a murder First Information Report (FIR) in the death of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) official Kamran Faisal, reported Express News.

The FIR was registered on an application filed by NAB officers who have maintained that Faisal – who was part of the team investigating the Rental Power Projects case – was killed and did not commit suicide.

Faisal’s initial post mortem report had declared his death to be the result of suicide. But his family members had rejected the report.

The FIR was registered under Section 302 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) which lists punishment for murder.

Following Faisal’s death, NAB officers and employees had demanded the NAB chairman to assure an independent investigation into the case and provide adequate security to officers.

Faisal was found hanging from the ceiling fan in his room at a government hostel in Islamabad, three days after the Supreme Court ordered the prime minister’s arrest in the RPPs case.

The Supreme Court had also taken a suo motu notice of the incident.

If Kamran's death is eventually proved as murder, which it is beginning to look more and more with each passing day, then the doctors who certified it as a suicide should also be criminally charged for trying to subvert justice. We do not need doctors in the country who falsify reports at the behest of powerful. They do disservice to their oath and their profession.

Dear Sir

I would like to point out that the name of the new proposed province Bahawalpur Janoobi Paunjab will be acronym as BJP which will not be taken well as the same is already used for Bhartia Janta Party which is a anti Pakistan hardliner party in the neighbouring country.

It should rather be named as Bhawalpur South Punjab - BSP
