LAHORE: Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP) chief Jahangir Tareen’s brother Alamgir Tareen allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself in the head, officials and family members said Thursday.

Alamgir, 63, allegedly committed suicide at his residence in Lahore’s Gulberg area, according to police reports.

Police officials said that Alamgir had left a hand-written suicide note citing a “disease he had been suffering from” as the reason for self-harm. However, the deceased’s friends said that he had never mentioned his illness to them.
