Scotland Yard is to be involved in the post-mortem process surrounding the death of British doctor Abbas Khan, the family's solicitor has said, after his body was flown back to the UK.
Nabeel Sheikh issued a statement which read:
The family are relieved that his body has been repatriated. Dr Khan is being transported by ambulance to the Coroner's Court in Walthamstow for the purposes of a post-mortem.
The Home Office is organising the process but, as a matter of course, Scotland Yard is actively involved given the circumstances surrounding Dr Khan's death are highly suspicious.
