ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders on Tuesday expressed grave concern over the health condition of Bushra Bibi after the arrival of an ambulance and a team of doctors at Bani Gala on Monday night.

The PTI leaders made it clear that the power-wielders would be held responsible if anything happens to Bushra because “everything has its limit,” vowing to go to any extent for the safety of Imran Khan’s spouse.

Speaking at a press conference here, the party leaders warned that Maryam Nawaz, the jail superintendent and the king of jungle and custodians would be held accountable if anything happened to her as the ‘current tyrant regime’ has crossed all boundaries of fascism and inhuman acts.

Accompanied by PTI Senator Dr Humayun Mohmand, senior lawyer Naeem Haider Panjutha and PTI Women Wing President Kanwal Shauzab, PTI Central Information Secretary Raoof Hasan demanded that Imran Khan’s wife be immediately shifted to the Shaukat Khanum hospital and be treated by doctors of her and Imran’s choice.

He contended that on Monday night, an ambulance and doctors arrived at Bani Gala, but when PTI people reached there, they rushed back without giving any information to her family, legal team and the PTI as to what happened to her, which was absolutely ridiculous, disgusting and inhumane. He said all the state institutions badly failed in performing their legal and constitutional duties. He lamented the role of the chief justice of Pakistan and said his inaction and silence over the worst human rights violations in the country raised many eyebrows.

Speaking on the occasion, PTI Senator Mohmand raised serious questions about the credibility of the medical assessment reports of Bushra Bibi, saying that her medical examination was delayed for two months potentially with malicious intent to hide their crime because if tests were not conducted in a specific window period, their results could be different.

Panjutha said Bushra Bibi had no health issue before detention and the issue of her medical examination was dragged for two months with malicious intent. He said when they came to know about the arrival of ambulance at Bani Gala, they reached there but neither were they allowed to enter the house nor any information about her health was shared with them. However, he said they came to know that she complained of chest pain and acidity, and she was first examined by two to three lady doctors and later a team of doctors joined them due to seriousness of the issue.

The PTI leader stated that Maryam Nawaz, the jail superintendent and the king of jungle would be held accountable if anything happened to Bushra Bibi, adding that the entire party was concerned about her health because her life was in danger.
