Muhammad Ijaz, the tallest man in Pakistan, has died in Punjab’s Bhakkar district at 42.
The deceased family said the man, who stood eight-foot two inches, died on Wednesday after suffering from a bone disorder for years. The funeral prayer will be offered at the native village tomorrow.
His brother, Abdul Hameed, told a media outlet that the funeral prayers will be offered in his native village, Thala Sarin. The district government had also fixed a monthly stipend for him as he was unable to earn a livelihood.
The hip bone of Ijaz was broken in an accident which makes his right leg shorter than the other one.
