Islamabad: Pakistan Police has closed the case of Kamran Faisal, an investigator of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) found dead in his official residence at Federal Lodges on January 18, a senior police official said.

The case was disposed of in the light of medical and foreign reports that came to the conclusion that Faisal had committed suicide, he added.

According to Dawn news, forensic experts declared in a report that he had not been murdered or tortured to death and that he had committed suicide.

The NAB got the FIR of the case registered after the family of Faisal insisted that they believed he had been killed because he had no reason to end his life.

Faisal was investigating the rental power plants (RPPs) scandal case, which involved Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf.

According to the forensic report, there were no marks of torture on the body of Faisal and he had not consumed any poisonous substance.

The investigator`s death came days after the court ordered the arrest of the prime minister and 15 others.

A preliminary medical report had said there was no mark of injury on the body of Faisal and that apparently he had committed a suicide, the report added.
