SHC nullifies order to exhume Aamir Liaquat's body

Aamir's son and daughter had decided to challenge the order of Judicial Magistrate.

KARACHI (Dunya News) - Sindh High Court (SHC) on Wednesday suspended the orders for the exhumation of famous televangelist Aamir Liaquat Hussain s body for an autopsy to ascertain the cause of his death.

Deceased TV host’s children had approached the SHC against the orders issued by a judicial magistrate in Karachi.

Earlier on Wednesday, Aamir’s family challenged the order of his autopsy in Sindh High Court (SHC).

Former televangelist’s children had pleaded that they do not want an autopsy of their father and prayed the court to order the implementation of their plea.

The court had earlier made two-member bench to hear the case on their application.

It is pertinent to mention here that on June 20, Judicial Magistrate in Karachi ordered the formation of a medical board for the post-mortem examination of former TV host and politician Aamir Liaquat.

A six-member medical board was formed for the exhumation of Aamir Liaquat’s body and to conduct an autopsy on court’s orders.

The medical board headed by surgeon Samiya Syed was supposed to exhume Amir’s body on June 23 and conduct an autopsy to confirm if he died of natural reasons or was murdered.

The PTI dissident was found unconscious at his house situated in Khudadad Colony of the metropolis on June 9, according to his servant.

The 50-year-old was rushed to a hospital where he could not be resuscitated and was pronounced dead.
