ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif underwent a medical examination at a private hospital in the federal capital on Sunday.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president was brought to the hospital by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials earlier today and his blood tests and CT Scan were conducted.
A four-member medical board had earlier recommended that Shehbaz’s CT scan be conducted on an immediate basis after his blood report indicated signs of cancer returning, sources said.
The board had also suggested that a larger board comprising cancer experts be formed, the sources added.
Sources further said, “After Shehbaz’s reports are received, the medical board will put forth its recommendations.”
Shehbaz, who has been in NAB’s custody since October 5 in connection to the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case, was flown to Islamabad on Friday to attend the National Assembly session.
