Home Department Punjab directs former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to be hospitalized.
On Saturday, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s condition was brought to Adiala jail when the jail authorities took him to Pimps for examination where he was checked up at a cardiac center.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s heart, kidney and hernia were checked up after which he was jailed.
However, now the Additional Chief Secretary of Interior has sent a notification to the IG prisons and other authorities stating that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi should be shifted to Shafa International Hospital Islamabad.
The notification has been directed to transfer the former Prime Minister to the hospital and also provide foolproof security to the hospital.
The Prime Minister will be shifted from Adiala Jail to the hospital at any time after the notification is issued.
It may be recalled that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrested the senior vice-president of the PML-N and former Minister of Petroleum Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on July 18 in the LNG case.
A reference has not been filed by NAB against Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and the remand of Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has been extended several times by the accountability court.
