Imran Khan | Imran Khan’s sanity ‘in question’, claims Pakistan health minister

Islamabad. Pakistan’s Health Minister Abdul Qadir Patel said on Friday that Imran Khan’s “mental balance is questionable” and alleged that evidence of toxic chemicals such as alcohol and cocaine was found in the former prime minister’s urine sample. Patel made a statement on the medical report released after the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party chief’s samples were taken at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) here following his arrest on May 9 in the Al-Qadir Trust corruption case. Addressed the press conference. He said, “This is your Prime Minister about whom a five-member panel of senior doctors is saying that his mental stability is doubtful. There were some inappropriate signals.” He said Khan’s medical report will be shown to the nation as it is a “public document”. Dawn News quoted the minister as saying, “The medical reports are saying that when we spoke to Imran for a long time, his actions were not like that of a healthy person.” Patel also alleged that the preliminary report of Khan’s urine sample showed the presence of toxic substances “like alcohol and cocaine”. The minister also claimed that there was no mention of any fracture (broken bone) in the leg in Khan’s medical report even though he was “putting his leg in plaster for five-six months”. Khan narrowly escaped an assassination attempt on November 3 last year during a march against the federal government in Punjab province. He had bullet injuries in his right calf and thigh. Patel said, “Have you ever seen anyone applying a plaster to a wound on the skin or muscle?” The minister said he would write to the disciplinary body of the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) for disciplinary action against the doctor who had “erroneously” declared that Khan had a broken leg. Describing the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman as narcissistic, Patel said the former prime minister “should be kept in a museum”. He said, “Being a narcissist, he sticks to his lies and calls them the truth. This self-obsessed person is provoking people and taking the youth on the wrong path.” Khan’s medical report was made public amid a crackdown on PTI and its supporters for violence that broke out across Pakistan following Khan’s arrest from the premises of the Islamabad High Court in a corruption case.
