Staff Reporter – LAHORE:
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif has suspended all political activities for two weeks after he fell down from the stairs of his house and got himself injured.
This was confirmed by PML-N Spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb on Thursday. She said that the incident occurred when the former Punjab chief minister was leaving for a press conference a day before, on September 29.
The PML-N spokesperson said that Shehbaz Sharif suffered back pain after the fall from stairs and doctors have advised him complete rest.
“Doctors have advised him [Shehbaz] complete rest and physiotherapy,” she said.
She further informed that the party president was safe from any major injury.
A day earlier, Shehbaz claimed that the Assets Recovery Unit (ARU), headed by the prime minister’s aide on accountability, Mirza Shahzad Akbar, approached the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) to open an inquiry against him and his son Suleman – maintaining that the fact that the agency could not find any evidence against them of money laundering meant that it was the PTI government’s attempt to “politically victimise” him.
