A team of expert doctors have advised him to take rest after his reports and multiple tests showed no signs of major injuries or internal organ damage, said Anjum Rizvi
He said Mr Sattar would remain in the hospital for at least three to four days until doctors are satisfied with his condition and added, the MQM leader would only be then discharged.
On Sunday night, the Muttahida leader was travelling to Karachi from Hyderabad along with his driver and guards when his pickup overturned near Nooirabad due to ‘overspeeding’.
The MQM leader’s vehicle somersaulted at least five times before it hit a kerb. His security guards were also injured in the accident while the MQM leader sustained minor injuries.
He along with other injured was immediately moved to a private hospital where MQM leader Khawaja Izharul Hassan told media representatives that he received minor injuries on shoulders and around his waist.
However, later doctors pronounced his condition as satisfactory.
