PML-N President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif was shifted to Inmol Hospital in Lahore on Thursday for a medical check-up, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The PML-N president underwent a number of medical tests in connection with his cancer at the hospital.

A heavy contingent of police has been deployed at the hospital for security and entry of patients halted.

Shehbaz Sharif’s doctors were also present in the hospital.

The decision to admit Shehbaz Sharif in the hospital will be made after the reports of the tests which will be available on Saturday and Monday.

Earlier, the Punjab health department had formed a medical board to examine him. The board comprising six government doctors was constituted on the direction of the accountability court.

Punjab Institute of Neurosciences (PINS) Prof Khalid Mahmood is heading the board also comprising Prof Saeed Ahmed, Prof Saima Ameer, Prof Rana Adil, Prof Khadija and Dr Abbas Khokhar as its members.

The accountability court in Lahore had earlier issued a written order regarding the formation of a medical board to examine Shehbaz Sharif. It had directed the government to include Sharif’s personal physicians including Arif Khan, Professor Aqeel Bari and Professor Tahir on the medical board.

Judge Jawadul Hassan had noted in the order that the accused was a patient of brain tumour and cancer and his legal right to get medical reports could not be neglected.
