Relatives of a senior anti-graft investigator, who was found dead in mysterious circumstances, Saturday alleged that his body bore marks of injuries though a preliminary autopsy report concluded that he had committed suicide.
Kamran Faisal, an Assistant Director of the National Accountability Bureau, was Friday found hanging from a fan in his room at the Federal Lodges, a government hostel in Islamabad.
Faisal was part of the team investigating allegations that Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf had accepted bribes to clear power projects.
Faisal's uncle Tariq Masood told reporters at Mian Channu in Punjab that he had seen injuries on Faisal's arms, wrists and back while bathing his body ahead of the funeral. "There are marks on the wrists as if he had been tied. There are marks on the back and below the neck. It looks as if his right arm was tightly held," Masood said. One of Faisal's cousins too said he had seen the bruises.
Geo News channels aired footage of what it said were marks of injuries on the body.
