Aamir Liaquat, a former Member of the National Assembly (MNA) and television broadcaster died in Karachi on Thursday. He was 49 years old.
The PTI leader was discovered unconscious at his residence in Khudad Colony and was sent to a private hospital in severe condition.
Last night, Liaquat complained of chest pains but refused to go to the hospital. Javed, one of his employees, reported hearing a scream from Liaquat’s chamber this morning.
When his domestic workers received no response from him, they smashed down the door to his chamber, according to Geo News.
Doctors later stated that Liaquat was dead when he arrived at the hospital.
The NA session has concluded
Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf addressed legislators during the National Assembly session that he had received sad information regarding Aamir Liaquat Hussain’s death.
He then stated that the NA procedures would be suspended immediately and that the session would be postponed until 5 p.m. tomorrow.
Meanwhile, police have launched an inquiry into the PTI leader’s death and searched his residence in Karachi’s Khudadad Colony. According to SSP East, the police will also seek CCTV video in order to determine the circumstances surrounding his death.
Because he died under unusual circumstances, officials have chosen to conduct a post-mortem.
