Federal Science Minister Fawad Chaudhry has written a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan, asking for an investigation of PML-N founder Nawaz Sharif’s medical tests conducted in Pakistan.
In 2019, the PML-N founder went to London after acquiring bail on medical grounds in a corruption reference filed by NAB. Nawaz wanted to get treated in foreign hospitals after being admitted in different medical facilities across Punjab.
He is currently in London. The medical reports he has sent from London have not satisfied the PTI-led Punjab government.
They claim Nawaz went abroad to avoid being jailed and that he is yet to be diagnosed with any illness. Chaudhry thinks so too.
He said the photos of Nawaz that have been circulating on social media indicate that the former PM is in good health.
“Nawaz Sharif not sharing details of the tests he went through in London with the Punjab government give an impression that he hasn’t been diagnosed with any disease,” Chaudhry wrote in the letter.
The minister also asked the PM to begin a probe into Nawaz’s treatment he received in Pakistan.
On the other hand, the Sharif family and Nawaz’s personal physician say that the he’s suffering from heart diseases and is being treated at a hospital in London.
