Chief Justice Saqib Nisar visited Karachi on Saturday to hear cases at the Supreme Court registry and his first stop was at Ziauddin Hospital where former Sindh information minister Sharjeel Inam Memon is currently admitted.
Memon is being tried in a corruption case and has been transferred from jail to the hospital. Justice Nisar only visited Memon’s room at the hospital and spent two to three minutes there.
During the visit, hospital staff were asked to step outside the room. He also visited Jinnah hospital and the NICVD.
Anwar Majeed and Hussain Lawai, both accused of money laundering in a massive scam being heard by a Karachi banking court, are admitted at NICVD. Anwar’s son AG Majeed is admitted at JPMC.
