Pakistan suspends PM graft probe after investigator's death

- +

Pakistan's anti-corruption watchdog Monday said it had suspended a probe into a graft scandal involving the prime minister pending an inquiry into the death of an officer investigating the case. 

Relatives bury the remains of Kamran Faisal, who was investigating a corruption scandal involving Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf and was found dead in a government hostel, in Mian Channu, on January 19, 2013. Officials say Faisal is suspected of committing suicide, but members of his family reportedly raised suspicions about bruises on his body.

Kamran Faisal was found dead on Friday in the government hostel where he lived in Islamabad with colleagues from anti-corruption watchdog the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
