Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shahbaz Gill was shifted to PIMS Hospital late Wednesday night after he complained of difficulty in breathing.
According to media reports, Gill complained of difficulty in breathing and poor health due to alleged torture after which he was shifted to the jail hospital for a checkup.
The news report further suggests that Gill’s oxygen saturation level was recorded at 97. For normal people, a pulse oximeter reading for oxygen saturation level is between 95 per cent and 100 per cent. Moreover, a sample for Covid-19 diagnostic testing was also sent to the laboratory.
The doctors said that Gill’s health condition was found satisfactory in the initial medical examination.
Meanwhile, Punjab Home Minister Hashim Dogar said that Gill’s “life is in danger”. He had earlier confirmed that the politician’s health was fine and there was no sign of torture.
Earlier yesterday, an Islamabad district and sessions court remanded the senior PTI leader into police custody for 48 hours in its verdict on a review plea seeking his physical remand in the sedition case.
