Aamir Liaquat’s house sealed for investigation

Hussain’s house was sealed by the police as the police launched investigations into the motives behind his sudden death. Soon after his death, the police said that his family refused to allow the doctors to carry out an autopsy and had asked for some time to make a decision regarding that.

Earlier on Thursday, the PTI leader was found unconscious at his home in Karachi’s Khudad Colony and shifted to a private hospital in critical condition.

Hussain reportedly felt chest discomfort last night but refused to go to the hospital. His employee, Javed, said a scream was heard from Hussain’s room today morning.

His domestic staff broke down his room’s door when they did not receive any reply from him. Later, the doctors said that Hussain was dead when he was brought to the hospital.
