KARACHI - The bottles seized from Pakistan Peoples Party leader's room Sharjeel Inam Memon, initially believed to have liquor in them, were tested in a traditional way by the investigators using human senses.

A video of the traditional testing is available on the internet which shows the investigators pouring the liquid from the bottle, checking the viscosity of the liquid before actually swallowing them.

Generally, the samples of the bottle should have been dispatched to a state of the art laboratory immediately, however, the investigators, as per the video, tested the liquid in an old-fashioned way.

The mobile footage shows the Chemical Examiner to the Sindh government, Dr Zahid Hasan Ansari, opening the bottles in Services Hospital and pouring their contents on his palm. The investigation officer of the case and other staff are also seen present.

The examiner smelled and tasted the contents and then asked the IO and other staff to taste and smell them as well. Later, it was announced that the bottles contained honey and oil.

Though the samples were forwarded to the Aga Khan Hospital, even then the traditional testing raises question marks on the authenticity of the tests, that implied that the bottles contained Olive Oil and Honey instead of alcohol.
