HYDERABAD: A female activist of a nationalist party and bank official was found dead under mysterious circumstances in her flat in Qasimabad on Wednesday.
Police found Murkh Jan Pirzada’s body hanging from a ceiling fan and shifted it to Liaquat University Hospital’s city branch, said incharge of Nasim Nagar police post, Waheed Panhwar, who was the first to reach the crime scene in response to an emergency call by the woman’s neighbours.
He said that the woman’s father was informed by police that his daughter was found dead in her flat at midnight of Tuesday-Wednesday. The body was handed over to heirs after post mortem, he said.
The woman, who was affiliated with Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz-Bashir, had rented the flat around a month back and worked in a private bank, said the police official.
Her father, Jan Mohammad, told police that she might have been murdered and then her body might have been hung from the ceiling fan to make it look like a suicide.
Anwar Shah, watchman of the apartment building, said that he was asked by one Saif Jatoi over phone to check whether Ms Pirzada was present in her flat and when he looked into her room after smashing the window he found her body hanging from the ceiling fan.
