Additional Inspector General (Operations) Aashir Hameed was found dead under mysterious circumstances at his official residence in the Police Lines in the federal capital on Friday, police officials said.
The officials suspected that the AIG might have died of a heart attack as blood was exuding out of his mouth and his body had blood stains on it, although no weapon was found nearby.
Later, the body was shifted to a hospital where a post-mortem would be carried out after the arrival of the family of the deceased AIG in Islamabad.
The officials however said that an investigation had been launched and the actual cause behind the death of Aashir Hameed would be ascertained after the autopsy report.
It may be mentioned here that Hameed was transferred to Balochistan a month ago, but he was still residing in his official residence in Islamabad.
