KARACHI: The Sindh High Court on Thursday disposed the plea seeking the autopsy and exhumation of televangelist Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussian after the parties in the case reached a consensus.
The two-judge bench, headed by Justice Muhammad Junaid Ghaffar, heard the plea and disposed of the plea after the parties in the case reached a consensus.
Earlier, the family of a renowned TV personality had approached Sindh High Court (SHC) to reverse a decision from a judicial magistrate for exhumation and autopsy, terming it an un-Islamic act and without the consent of the family.
On June 9, 22, PTI’s MP Aamir Liaquat Hussain was found unconscious at his house situated in Khudadad Colony of the metropolis. The 50-year-old was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
At the outset of today’s hearing, Justice Iqbal Kalhoro directed the complainants to approach a session court against the orders of the judicial magistrate as high court cannot be approached in this case directly. Later, the court wrapped up the case.
On June 20, a local court in Karachi ordered the formation of a medical board for the post-mortem examination of former TV host and politician Aamir Liaquat Hussain.
