However, the motive behind the suicide is yet to be confirmed.

Deputy Mayor Arshad Vohra told Samaa Iqbal did not kill himself due to non-payment of pension as his pension payments had been cleared.

According to KMC officials, cheques worth Rs 740 million have been readied for 1,330 workers on the orders of the Sindh High Court. However, the workers have not been paid due to limited funds available with the KMC. – SAMAA
