Bottles found in Sharjeel’s hospital room contained honey, olive oil: PPP leader
KARACHI: In an effort to cover up the episode of alleged recovery of three bottles of alcohol from former Sindh minister Sharjeel Memon’s hospital room, PPP leader Nasir Hussain Shah on Saturday claimed the bottles didn’t contain liquor but honey and olive oil.
Speaking to media, he offered that a medical check-up of Memon be conducted to ascertain this fact. He said they held Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar in high esteem.
The PPP leader said the bottles recovered from the hospital’s kitchen should also be sent for an examination.
He said Memon, who had undergone a surgery recently, needed dressing for two or three more weeks. He added the surgery was part of record and offered an inquiry be carried out into the matter.
He lamented that the former minister’s driver and guard were arrested without any plausible reason.
Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday paid a surprise visit to Memon’s room at the Ziauddin Hospital and said to have recovered three bottles of liquor from his room.
The chief justice arrived at the hospital in Clifton amid tight security on Saturday morning and went to the room where Memon was being treated after visiting different wards.
He reportedly stayed in his room for two to three minutes.
While hearing a case at the apex court’s Karachi registry after his return from the hospital, the chief justice revealed that three bottles of liquor were recovered from Memon’s room.
