ISLAMABAD: A district and sessions court ordered another medical check up of Shehbaz Gill at PIMS hospital for a reassessment of his health. The court gave this decision while announcing the verdict on a plea seeking an extension in physical remand of Gill in a sedition case against him.
The court observed, “Shahbaz Gill’s condition is not fine.” Duty judge Judicial Magistrate Raja Farrukh Ali Khan announced the decision.
The court ordered the authorities to keep Gill in PIMS hospital till Monday.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s chief of staff Shahbaz Gill was presented before the court early morning. He was escorted by the police to court in a wheelchair from the PIMS hospital after being deemed “fit” by a medical board. Strict security arrangements were in place outside the court.
At the outset of the hearing, Gill pleaded to the court to return his oxygen mask, complaining that it was snatched while he was being escorted to the courtroom.
“For God’s sake, give me my mask back,” he said.
At this, the judge asked him if he intends to stay, to which Gill said he will if his mask is provided to him. Later, an oxygen cylinder was also brought to the court.
