The mother of deceased senior journalist and anchorperson Arshad Sharif went to court on Friday and asked for a copy of the results of the postmortem that was performed in Islamabad.

After Sharif’s body was brought back to Pakistan, an autopsy was performed on it before the body was sent to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) for burial. Two people who were proposed by Sharif’s family were on the board.


She added that the hospital administration informed them that the report was given to the police and that they did not maintain a copy of the postmortem report and asked the court to hear the case promptly today.


She asked a copy of the postmortem report be given to her in the interest of openness and accused the PIMS administration of making fools of the family of murdered journalist Arshad Sharif.
