London, Mon, 05 Mar 2012 ANI

London/Lahore, Mar. 5 (ANI): A leading British barrister has been found dead in a Lahore hotel room.


Relatives of Paul McBride, a Queen's Counsel (QC), said the 48-year-old had died in his sleep and added that he was on a trip with a fellow human rights lawyer.


Paul died in his sleep last night in a hotel in Pakistan and at this time we would ask you to respect the privacy of his family," The Independent quoted his family, as saying in a statement.


One of Scotland's most high profile barristers, McBride became a QC at the age of 35 - a record - and featured in a number of major cases.


He also represented the Celtic Football Club.


Reports said that McBride was travelling with fellow lawyer Aamer Anwar, and had attended the wedding of one of Anwar's relatives.


The Pakistan Foreign Office said they could confirm the death of a British national and that its officials were providing consular assistance to the family.


Lahore Police has said that it is investigating the causes behind McBride's death. (ANI)
