KARACHI: Convicted Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Sharjeel Memon’s blood samples did not show any quantity of alcohol, the result of the lab reports revealed.
Pakistan Peoples Party leader Sharjeel Memon was transferred to Karachi Central Jail following the recovery of 3 bottles of liquors and drugs by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar in his hospital room during a surprise visit.
The chief justice revealed that three bottles of alcohol were found in Sharjeel Memon’s room after returning to Supreme Court’s Karachi Registry.
Memon’s two blood samples were sent to hospital for testing, after Chief of Justice of Pakistan in a surprise visit found bottles allegedly containing alcohol in his hospital room.
An investigation team was formed on Sunday to probe the discovery of liquor bottles from the room of a hospital where Sharjeel Inam Memon was under treatment.
A day earlier, the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar paid a surprise visit to the hospital in Karachi’s Clifton vicinity. During his visit, the top judge discovered alcohol bottles, drugs, and cigarettes in Memon’s room.
Following the raid and examination, Memon was shifted to Central Prison Karachi. His blood samples were also taken, while the room was sealed.
The CJP, while responding to a question about his visit, said that he went ‘to a sub-jail not a hospital’.
