Hamza Shehbaz reaches Lahore after tending to ailing daughter
LAHORE: Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz reached Pakistan from London on Monday, ARY News reported.
The Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader was abroad to tend to his ailing newborn daughter after the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Feb 11 accorded an approval on the application filed by Hamza Shehbaz for extension of his stay in London owing to medical complications of his infant child.
Hamza’s newborn daughter had to undergo a cardiac procedure in London due to complications at birth.
Sources said the baby was moved to the intensive care unit (ICU) of the hospital immediately after her birth owing to her serious condition. She was suffering from a heart complication as doctors recommended an urgent surgery to save the baby’s life.
The PML-N leader left for London on Feb 3 after the LHC ordered his name to be taken off the Exit Control List. It had granted him a one-time exemption to travel abroad.
The opposition leader is facing a number of corruption inquiries, including alleged accumulation of assets beyond his known sources of income, financial irregularities in the Saaf Pani Company and illegal construction of a bridge at the expense of taxpayers’ money to facilitate the Ramzan Sugar Mills.
Moreover, he has been summoned today by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the Model Town case.
