Dr Saleem Mohib, a psychologist and brother of the doctor who committed suicide after killing his daughter in Multan a week ago, also set himself on fire, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday. 

The burnt body of the doctor was found in the kitchen. Police have shifted the body to Nishtar Hospital for autopsy. 

SSP Investigation Captain (retd) Amir Niazi said that an empty bottle of petrol and other evidence were collected from the spot and apparently it was a ‘suicide’ case.

Earlier, renowned psychiatrist Dr Azhar Hussain allegedly killed his daughter Dr Aliza Haider on January 22 over a ‘domestic dispute’ and later on ended his life with the same pistol at his residence in Justice Hameed Colony.

Dr Aliza was shot in the neck by her father and was rushed to the hospital by her mother Bushra but the victim passed away before she could avail medical treatment. 

The 66-year-old, Dr Azhar, had retired from Nishtar Hospital six years ago as a professor of psychiatry but continued to practise psychiatry at his residence. 

The suicide shocked the neighbours and people also expressed their sorrow on social media over the incident.
