LAHORE: Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday ordered to shift Hanif Abbassi facing a jail term in ephedrine case, from jail to Shiekh Zaid hospital.

The LHC bench heard the petition seeking suspension of Hanif Abbassi jail term due to his health condition in the ephedrine case.

Hanif Abbasi consul contended the court that his client is cardiac and kidney patient and he is not provided with necessary treatment in the jail and requested the court to order shifting his client to hospital from the jail.

The LHC bench accepting the arguments approved his shifting from jail to hospital and ordered that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Hanif Abbassi be shifted to Shiekh Zayid hospital from the jail.
