Islamabad: A Pakistani investigation officer who was found hanging from a ceiling fan had requested the chief of the anti-corruption agency to put him off the power plants case involving Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf.
Geo News said Kamran Faisal, an assistant director, had requested the the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) director general that being a junior officer he was not qualified enough to take up a case as big as the power projects scam.
Police said the officer was living in federal lodges and allegedly committed suicide. An investigation is underway.
Faisal was assisting investigation officer Asgahr Khan in the mega corruption scandal allegedly involving Ashraf.
"I have never come to grips with a mega corruption case like this one during my whole service in the bureau. A senior officer will be better suited to carry out an inquiry as sensitive as this," Faisal wrote in a letter dated Nov 13, 2012, a copy of which is with Geo News.
