The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday has ordered the Pakistan Institute of Management (PIMS) medical superintendent to determine the disease of former president Asif Zardari.

Further the case was adjourned until December 11th.

The bench comprising of Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Aamer Farooq heard Asif Zardari’s plea for bail on medical grounds.

The court ordered to include Asif Zardari’s personal physician in the board and submit a new medical report on December 11.

It also ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to submit the written reply on the next date of hearing.

Meanwhile, the court will also hear the bail plea of Faryal Talpur.

On Tuesday, Asif Zardari had filed a bail plea in the Islamabad High Court, seeking bail in the mega money laundering and Park Lane case.

He requested the court to hear the plea and grant him bail on medical grounds today. The NAB and Accountability Court No 2 have been made the parties in the plea.

The former president stated that he was suffering from a cardiac disease and three stents were inserted in his heart. “I am also a diabetic and need permanent treatment to control the sugar level,” he contended.
