Looks like the man, Yan Peng (35), died 12 days ago and officials checked his room following a foul smell.
A Chinese engineer working in Pakistan was found dead in the premises of the Chinese embassy here, apparently 12 days after his death when the officials from the mission checked his room following a foul smell, media reports said on Monday.
The Chinese national identified as Yan Peng (35) was working at the mission as a construction engineer. He was given a room at the embassy to stay as he was not involved in any construction work currently, local media reports said, citing police.
On June 3, a stench began emanating from the room. The engineer’s body was found in the room when it was opened, police said.
No torture marks
There were no visible marks of torture on the body, police said, adding the Chinese national had apparently died around 12 days ago.
Emergency services have shifted the body to a hospital for further examination.
Thousands of Chinese workers are employed in Pakistan, working on a host of projects connected with the $50-billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
