–LHC defers PML-N VP’s bail plea in CSM case
LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz will undergo medical tests at Services Hospital after she was moved to the facility on Friday, reported a local media outlet.
The PML-N VP will also meet her father, who is critically ill and is admitted to the same hospital.
Prime Minister Imran Khan, meanwhile, has directed Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar to ensure Maryam is provided medical care and allowed to see the former premier as well.
On Thursday, Punjab Governor Ch Sarwar announced that Prime Minister Imran had issued directives to keep Maryam Nawaz with her father in the same hospital.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz, who is a nominee in the ongoing Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM) reference, was also admitted to the hospital on Wednesday night after a meeting with her ailing father.
However, she was moved back to Kot Lakhpat jail the same day after spending a few hours at SIMS.
Earlier in the day, the Lahore High Court (LHC) deferred a bail plea filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz, seeking her immediate bail on the basis of basic rights and humanity.
A day earlier, Maryam had filed the petition seeking immediate bail in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case, following which the court had issued a notice to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
In its response submitted the following day, the accountability watchdog sought time to submit its reply to the petition.
The court accepted the plea and directed NAB to submit a formal reply by Monday.
Maryam, who is a nominee in the on-going Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM) reference, was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday night after a meeting with her ailing father. Following the meeting, Maryam suffered an anxiety attack and she was admitted to the VVIP II room, next to her father’s room in the hospital.
On Thursday, Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar announced that Prime Minister Imran has issued directives to keep the PML-N VP with her father at the same hospital, hours after the Bureau had shifted her back to Kot Lakhpat jail from Services Hospital.
