Medical board will again examine Pakistan Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief and former premier Imran Khan on Friday to determine whether he should be discharged from hospital or not, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Imran Khan is currently under treatment at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital after being injured by bullet during an armed attack on his container while he was leading the long march. 

Khan undergo through a surgery last night during which particles of bullet were removed from his leg. The medical board examining Khan comprises surgeons, orthopedics, physicians and others. Former premier is currently admitted in the post operation ward.

Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in and around the hospital.

Dr Faisal Sultan

Imran Khan "was stable and he was doing fine" at Shaukat Khanum Hospital in Lahore, his doctor Faisal Sultan told AFP Friday morning.

The 70-year-old former international cricket star had been leading a campaign convoy of thousands since last week from Lahore to Islamabad when he was attacked.

Imran Khan escaped with at least one bullet wound to his right leg when a gunman sprayed pistol fire at his modified container truck as it slowly drove through a thick crowd in Wazirabad.

"Everyone who was standing in the very front row got hit," former information minister Fawad Chaudhry, who was standing behind Khan, told AFP.

Long march to continue

Fawad Chaudhry said PTI officials would meet later Friday to discuss the immediate fate of Khan's campaign march, but vowed it would continue. "The real freedom long march will continue and the movement for people's rights will remain until an announcement on the general elections," he tweeted.
