Arshad Sharif died from multiple high-velocity gunshots: Kenya’s medical report
Senior journalist Arshad Sharif was killed due to multiple injuries caused by the firing of a high-velocity firearm from two different directions, according to Kenyan medical report.
In the postmortem report, the cause of death of Arshad Sharif has been attributed to multiple injuries, while the report states that bullet hit Arshad Sharif from the left side of the head, causing brain injury.
The second bullet hit Arshad Sharif in the right side of the upper back, the bullet that hit Arshad Sharif above the waist exited from the right side of the chest.
The report states that the second bullet that hit Arshad Sharif caused lung damage, both bullets were fired from a medium range modern firearm.
Arshad Sharif’s post-mortem team has also collected samples of different parts of the body for further investigation.
On the other hand official sources said, the Pakistan’s authorities have obtained the travel records of Khurram Ahmed and Waqar Ahmed, hosts of Arshad Sharif in Kenya.
Khurram and Waqar are originally from Karachi and both own and run several property projects in Nairobi. They also own a farmhouse and firing range some 300 hours out of the capital where Sharif was last seen before his death.
Investigative sources said Khurram Ahmed came to Pakistan four times for a short period in 10 months of the ongoing year. Sources added that, when Arshad Sharif left the country on August 10, Khurram Ahmed was present in Pakistan.
Notably, the Kenyan police contradicted its statement by first saying that Sharif was killed in a case of mistaken identity, but later it alleged that shots were fired at the police from inside Sharif’s car and he was killed when the response unit fired back.
