Pakistan: Blast victim 'recovers' in grave but succumbs to injuries later
<p>A victim of a bomb attack was on Monday rushed to hospital from a cemetery in northwest Pakistan after people saw his "body" move as it was being lowered into the grave, but the reprieve was short-lived as he died soon after.</p>

A victim of a bomb attack was on Monday rushed to hospital from a cemetery in northwest Pakistan after people saw his "body" move as it was being lowered into the grave, but the reprieve was short-lived as he died soon after.

Sohrab Khan was pronounced dead by doctors at Lady Reading Hospital and his body was taken in a coffin to his village, Matta Mughal Khel, in Charsadda district of Khyber- Pakhtunkhwa province for burial.

Fifteen people offered funeral prayers for Khan, who was injured in a car bomb attack in Peshawar's historic Qissa Khwani Bazar that killed over 40 people on Sunday.

But when some movement was noticed as the body was being lowered into the grave, Khan was immediately taken to a nearby hospital for initial treatment. He was then moved back to Lady Reading Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Khan's relatives staged a protest at the hospital and accused doctors of "killing" him. They demanded an inquiry into the incident. The relatives said the doctors wrongly pronounced Khan dead when he was brought to the hospital from Qissa Khwani Bazar.  Khan's funeral prayers will now be held for a second time, his family said.
