LAHORE: A medical board constituted by the Punjab government has returned former premier Nawaz Sharif’s medical reports to the Home Department with the objection that they are unacceptable and ‘incomplete’.
The board, which had been constituted to assess the health of the PML-N supreme leader, said it could not do its job using the medical reports sent by the Sharif family from London, as they were “incomplete and insufficient”.
The board’s chair informed the Punjab government that a meeting had been held to examine the reports but it failed to arrive at a meaningful conclusion as the reports were incomplete.
The board’s chair said reports about the cardiac function test, genetic testing, bone marrow tests, PET scan and platelets were missing from the documents sent by the Sharif family.
On Friday, January 31, Nawaz’s physician had said that a “comprehensive” health report had been submitted to the Government of Punjab.
In a post on Twitter, Dr Adnan Khan had shared copies of his letter addressed to Punjab Home Department, stating that a “detailed conclusive medical letter was submitted earlier today”.
Dr Khan had claimed the letter was based “on latest medical reports, specialists’ opinions and future management plan”.
According to the physician, the report “amply substantiates the seriousness of his multiple, complex ailments which require short, medium and long term treatment and aggressive continuous management”.
