Pakistan top court to probe corruption official Kamran Faisal's death

Help

The Pakistani Supreme Court has set up its own inquiry into the death of an official who was investigating corruption allegations against Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf.

The probe will run in parallel to an inquiry ordered by the interior ministry on Sunday.

Kamran Faisal was found hanged on Friday in the government hostel in Islamabad where he lived.

Police say he may have taken his own life, but his family allege foul play.
