The nuclear scientist, 85, was rushed to a private hospital in Islamabad after his health deteriorated.
Rasheed said that the doctors did everything to save the nuclear scientist’s life but couldn’t do so. Doctors added the scientist passed away after his lungs collapsed.
Dr AQ Khan’s funeral prayers will be held at the Faisal Mosque at 3:30pm. The hospital administration is making arrangements to move the body to his E-7 residence.
Earlier, on August 27, he was moved to the KRL Hospital after he contracted Covid. Last month, according to a report by DAWN, the scientist complained that neither Prime Minister Imran Khan, nor his cabinet members inquired after his health.
