Doctors at PIMS declare Shahbaz Gill’s medical reports satisfactory

Doctors at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Islamabad, who examined PTI leader Shahbaz Gill, currently in Islamabad police’s custody for questioning in connection with his anti-Pak Army statement, on Thursday said that his medical reports were satisfactory.

Doctors at the hospital told reporters the PTI leader’s heartbeat was also normal; his saturation level was recorded at 97, while his blood pressure was measured at 110/70.

Doctors further disclosed that Gill was not suffering from fever either.

Shahbaz Gill has been shifted to the Cardiology Ward of Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) after completion of his CT Scan.

According to the hospital sources, Shahbaz Gill’s condition is satisfactory, and he does not have heartache.

“Shahbaz Gill’s heartbeat was fast at night. His ECG tests will be performed again. Anxiety can increase heartbeat which can lead to breathing difficulties. The medical board will re-examine him,” said the sources.

PIMS administration, on the other hand, said that report of the blood samples taken from Gill’s body was being awaited.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Insaf Doctors Association also visited the hospital and inquired after Gill’s health.

Shahbaz Gill had been shifted to PIMS Hospital late Wednesday night. A five-member team of doctors had been constituted to look after the PTI leader facing charges of passing “highly hateful and seditious remarks”.

Earlier, the federal capital police got custody of Gill on court orders.

In a statement, the Islamabad police said that Gill has not been subjected to torture during physical remand.

PTI senior leader and former federal minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has criticized the PML-N media cell for portraying Shahbaz Gill’s illness as minor.

In a tweet he said “The media cell of the N-League, in which most of the journalists are doing their second jobs, are saying that Shahbaz Gill’s illness is minor.”

On the other hand, PTI leaders Asad Umar and Dr Babar Awan filed yet another petition in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) against the torture being inflicted in the jail.
A six-member medical board has been constituted for the treatment of PTI leader Shahbaz Gill, a day after he was shifted to the hospital for his medical tests before being handed over to Islamabad police on physical remand.

Meanwhile, a six-member medical board has been formed to treat Gill. The board included doctors specialized in cardiology, pulmonology, medicine, neurologist and others.

A medical report has been submitted to Islamabad Session which states that PTI leader Gill is suffering from phobia, anxiety and asthma.

As reported earlier, Gill’s situation was stable and he was not diagnosed with a heart problem. A night before his ECG was not normal as anxiety can also trigger heart palpitations.

Earlier, PTI supreme and former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Chief of Staff Shahbaz Gill was shifted to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) hospital over a serious medical condition.

The PTI leader was shifted to PIMS under high alert security while a medical team has been formed comprising heart, lung specialists doctors and medical officers.

Earlier, Shahbaz Gill had been handed over to Islamabad Police from Adiala Jail Rawalpindi authorities.

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan and PTI chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday directed the authorities concerned to immediately shift PTI leader Shahbaz Gill to Rawalpindi hospital.

The PTI chairman issued orders to Additional Chief Secretary and Inspector General (IG) Police Jails to prevent Gill from being placed on physical remand.

Sources privy to the matter said that Imran Khan ordered to create an emergency situation to immediately shift Shahbaz Gill to a hospital.

The former PM was told that this is illegal and cannot be done but he responded by saying that he does not care about the results.

Former SAPM and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shahbaz Gill has challenged the session court’s ruling regarding two-day physical remand in sedition case in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

Gill challenged Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhary’s decision through his lawyers. Additional Sessions Judge, IG and SSP Islamabad among others have been made parties in the petition.

Earlier, the session court of Islamabad had approved PTI chairman Imran Khan’s chief of staff’s two-day physical remand in sedition case.

Previously, the Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry held hearing on the review appeal against the rejection of PTI leader’s physical remand, in which the prosecutor and Shahbaz Gill’s lawyer completed their arguments.

The court had sent Shahbaz Gill on two-day physical remand in the verdict.

On August 9, Gill was arrested by Islamabad Police outside Banigala Chowk on charges of “making statements against state institutions and inciting the people to rebellion.”

On Monday, the Islamabad court issued notices to Gill in the government’s petition seeking his physical remand.

A single-member bench of Acting Chief Justice Aamer Farooq on Monday heard the federal government’s petition filed through Advocate General Islamabad Jahangir Jadoon seeking physical custody of the PTI leader to collect additional evidence in the case and acquire the names of those behind the alleged offence.

In the petition, the prosecution cited Gill, the sessions judge, Islamabad and the judicial magistrate as respondents. The government adopted the stance in the petition that the investigation was incomplete and Judicial Magistrate Umar Shabbir granted judicial remand and rejected an extension of Gill’s physical remand which has resulted in the prosecution case being subjected to “serious prejudice”.

It requested physical custody of the accused, arguing that the “police have yet to recover the mobile phone of the accused containing necessary information/date to corroborate the contents of FIR as a piece of evidence.”
