Islamabad, November 19, 2018 (PPI-OT): A Pakistani student Mr. Usama Ahmad Khan committed suicide at Shenyang city in Liaoning province in China. He was a student of Shenyang Jianzhu University. Upon receipt of information, the Ambassador of Pakistan to China deputed an officer of the Embassy to visit Shenyang. In Shenyang, he met students and faculty of the University, as well as, the police authorities. Throughout this process, he remained in close contact with the family of the deceased and got full support of Chinese authorities.
In close coordination with the family, the Mission will send the dead body to Pakistan. The body was transported from Liaoning province to Beijing in the morning of 17 November, 2018. All arrangements are now in place for transportation of the dead body to Pakistan tonight. There is a need to respect sensitivity and privacy, especially of the bereaved family. The video being circulated on the social media is fake and is not that of Mr. Usama Ahmad Khan. We request all to help us in exercising caution in such matters, avoiding sensationalism and stopping spreading of “fake news”.
