Aamir Liaquat Hussain, 50, was discovered unconscious at his Karachi house.
The circumstances surrounding the tragic death of a prominent televangelist-turned-politician in Pakistan on Thursday are being investigated by Pakistani authorities.
Ghulam Nabi Memon, the provincial police chief, said Aamir Liaquat Hussain, 50, was found unresponsive at his house in Karachi and was rushed to a hospital where he was subsequently confirmed dead.
“Police are attempting to persuade the family to allow an autopsy because the circumstances surrounding the death are unknown,” Memon told Reuters through WhatsApp. He stated that he had given the Karachi police chief orders to begin the postmortem investigation.
The family had declined an autopsy and had taken the body to a morgue, according to the rescue service’s information office.
According to the information provided by the service, Hussain was discovered unresponsive at his home by one of his employees.
