Punjab Govt Says Nawaz’s Medical Report Not Updated
The Punjab government has sent a letter to former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nawaz Sharif asking him to submit updated medical reports within three days in relation to a bail plea filed by the former premier.
“His [Sharif’s] hematological and bio-chemical reports, especially platelet count, have not been provided. The board would like to know his CBC, kidney functions, and bone marrow studies,” the provincial government said, citing a board that examined the Dec 25 report submitted by Sharif.
Punjab Health Minister Yasmin Rashid, earlier this month, had said that the relief granted to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif for medical treatment abroad had expired and he should submit an updated report regarding his health to the provincial authorities.
Yasmin Rashid, while talking about Sharif’s earlier submitted report , said “the report does not mention anything new related to the treatment being accorded to Nawaz Sharif. We have written to the home department that we cannot give any opinion on the report.”
On December 25, the former premier’s legal team had submitted a report to authorities in Pakistan detailing the health of the Nawaz Shareef and asked the court to extend his bail on medical grounds.
