ISLAMABAD: A case officer investigating a corruption scandal involving Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf was found dead yesterday in Islamabad, officials said.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday demanded Ashraf’s arrest in the long-running case, but anti-corruption watchdog the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) told the chief justice on Thursday that it did not yet have enough evidence.

Officials said Kamran Faisal, was found dead in the government hostel where he lived with other colleagues from NAB.

“He was found dead in his room. He is suspected to have committed suicide. Police have taken the body. A post-mortem is being carried out,” a NAB spokesman added.

“We will share further details when we get them,” the spokesman added.
