- Sources say PTI has been warned if he doesn’t rest his leg could swell.
- He may need another surgery if his condition does not improve.
- PTI chief was hit on the leg last November in Wazirabad, Punjab.
LAHORE: A medical board from Shaukat Khanum Hospital has advised Pakistani Chairman of Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan to have “complete rest”, sources told Geo news on Wednesday.
Officials who spoke Geo news on condition of anonymity, warned that if the PTI chief does not rest, his leg, hit by bullets in Wazirabad during last year’s long march, could “swell”.
“Swelling is a sign of threat and in such a scenario he may require further surgery,” the medical board sources said. It also advised the PTI chief not to move unnecessarily and not to put pressure on his affected leg.
On November 3 last year, Khan was injured in a gun attack in Wazirabad when the PTI chief, along with other PTI leaders, stood atop his container leading the anti-government long march to Islamabad. He suffered gunshot wounds to his leg.
A day after the attack, on November 4, Khan issued a video statement from Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital in Lahore, saying, “These injuries were caused by four bullets that hit me.” But a few days later, on November 7, Khan told CNN that the doctors “took out three bullets.”
The PTI chief has been embroiled in more than 100 cases since he was removed from power in a no-confidence vote last April.
After suffering injuries, the PTI chief sought help on medical grounds and skipped a number of court cases.
