Punjab government responds over the matter of bail extension of former PM Nawaz Sharif
LAHORE: Punjab government responds over the matter of bail extension of former PM Nawaz Sharif.
The committee formed for suggestions over ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s medical reports in connection with extension in his bail plea has recommended not to extend the bail of PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.
Sources said the committee in its report, sent to Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, has recommended against extension in the bail of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on medical grounds.
The report has been made collectively by the Punjab home department and medical board.
Nawaz Sharif’s personal physician Dr Adnan in a meeting held between PML-N representatives and govt committee had sought two-week time for the medical procedure of Nawaz Sharif at London hospital.
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s personal physician Dr Adnan Khan on Monday dismissed reports that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader is undergoing a medical procedure at a London hospital.
“Former PM NawazSharif link is NOT undergoing any medical procedure/surgery TODAY as reported in the media widely,” he tweeted.
“He’s due for a planned Cardiac Catheterization / Coronary Intervention which is being scheduled & will be conveyed accordingly. Thanks for good wishes & prayers please.”
Earlier, on Feb 21, a Punjab government committee had forwarded the latest medical reports of Nawaz Sharif to a medical board to make its recommendations on whether or not the PML-N supreme leader be given permission to extend his stay in London.
