Lt General Muzaffar Usmani found dead in Karachi

Karachi: Lt General Muzaffar Usmani was found dead in his car in Karachi’s Defence area on Thursday.

According to reports, the former Karachi Corps Commander suffered a fatal heart attack.

Usmani was close aide to former military ruler Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf who had staged a coup against Nawaz Sharif in October 1999.

Gen Usmani went on to become a pariah in Musharraf regime after he opposed his boss’s decision to support the United States in the Afghan war in the wake of 9/11 attacks.

Pictures of Usmani’s dead body behind the wheel of his car went viral on social media in Pakistan, with people offering condolences to his family.
