Court Orders Aamir Liaquat's Post-Mortem

Judicial Magistrate Ordered That A Post-Mortem Examination To Be Conducted

On Saturday, a judicial magistrate in Karachi ordered that a post-mortem examination be conducted on the deceased politician and television personality Aamir Liaquat Hussain, who died on June 9 and was buried the next day. 

Cause Of The Death Deceased Is Still Uncertain

Judicial Magistrate (East) Wazeer Hussain Memon stated, “It is crystal clear that the cause of death of the deceased is still uncertain, which has raised question on the death, whether it is natural or unnatural, and could only be ascertained after exhumation of the dead body and its examination.” 

Disinterment Of The Body Of Deceased Aamir Liaquat Is Necessary

“In the given facts and circumstances of the case at hand, and particularly in light of guidelines set by honourable superior courts on the subject,” he continued, “I am of the considered opinion that disinterment of the body of deceased Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain is necessary to determine the actual cause of his death in order to remove suspicions and clouds of doubt over his death.” 

Police Announced That An Autopsy Would Be Performed

Following Hussain’s untimely death, the police announced that an autopsy would be performed; however, his family objected, and the police merely conducted a preliminary inspection before surrendering control of the body. 

The Actual Cause Of Death Of The Deceased To Exonerate Doubts

A citizen named Abdul Ahad filed an application in the court of Judicial Magistrate (East) Wazeer Hussain Memon on Friday (yesterday) seeking Hussain’s post-mortem, arguing that in light of previous “judgments passed by the superior courts, reasonable suspicion is considered to be sufficient, to ascertain the actual cause of death of the deceased to exonerate doubts.” 

He further said that the deceased’s heirs’ refusal to consent to an autopsy was not a “legal/valid cause” for denying the post-mortem examination request.

Petitioner Asked The Court To Conduct A Medical Examination

The petitioner asked the court to conduct a “medical examination, disinterment, exhumation, and post-mortem of the deceased’s dead body for the purpose of justice and to identify and ascertain the deceased’s real/actual cause of death.” 

Aamir’s Sample Be Sent To The Punjab Forensic Science Agency

He also requested that the Sindh health director-general constitute a medical board for the purpose of forensic examination and other testing and that Hussain’s samples be sent to the Punjab Forensic Science Agency in Lahore for forensic examination and other tests. 

In the plea, the State, the East district senior superintendent of police (SSP), and the Brigade police station house officer (SHO) were named as respondents. 

After serving notifications on the East district SSP, Brigade police SHO, and Hussain’s family, the court set the hearing for 9 a.m. today. 

After hearing comments from the respondents’ counsel, it had reserved its decision on the plea this morning. 

The state’s attorney, Sajjad Ali Dashti, said Hussain’s heirs were opposing to the post-mortem examination, claiming that it would cause “pain to his spirit.” 

The lawyer continued, “The heirs also maintain they have no doubts on anyone” in relation to Hussain’s death. 

Cause Of Aamir’s Death Could Not Be Determined

Furthermore, according to a police report provided to the court, the cause of Hussain’s death could not be determined until an “interior inspection of the body is undertaken,” according to the police surgeon. 

The Court Reserved Its Decesion On The Case

After hearing these arguments, the court reserved its decision on the case and issued orders for Hussian’s post-mortem examination later that day. 

While Hussain’s children were the custodians of his grave, the written order stated that “when the death is suspicious and there are chances of commission of an offence or otherwise, it is the basic scheme of criminal law that criminal machinery has to be set in motion to unearth fact behind the scene.” 

The death of Aamir Liaquat Hussain, 50, died earlier this month at his home in Karachi’s Khudadad Colony. 

Police Informed Dawn At the Time Aamir Was Not Feeling Well

Police informed Dawn at the time that he was not feeling well, according to his domestic workers, but he did not seek medical attention. His condition worsened, and he was rushed to the Aga Khan University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Aamir Liaquat’s Home Is Sealed

Hussain’s home was sealed for further investigation after a crime scene unit examined and collected evidence, according to police.
