Shabiha Naqvi

Islamabad (July 24, 2017):  The incarcerated Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) chairman Zafar Hijazi, who is admitted in PIMS due to health issues, will undergo two test today.

Dictators at PIMS said that Hijazi was also suffering from heart problem and will undergo angiography if reports of his transplanted kidney were clear.

Zafar Hijazi was arrested from court premises by FIA on last Friday after his bail-before-arrest plea was rejected by a local court.

However, later he was shifted to Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) after he complained of kidney pain.

An FIA inquiry team had found him guilty of tampering with the records of companies owned by the Sharif family.

Earlier on Saturday, the SECP chairman was brought to the court in an ambulance in stringent security. The court handed over him to FIA on physical remand for four days in the tempering case.

The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) – which had probed into the Sharif family’s offshore assets in line with the apex court’s April 20 verdict in the Panamagate case – alleged that the SECP chairman tampered with records of the Sharif’s sugar mills.

Following his admission in PIMS, a medical team was constituted to examine him comprising Naeem Mailk, Dr Sajid Qazi (urologist), Dr Sohail (Nephrologist), Dr Shahji and Dr Faisal Kaker.

According to the medical board, Zafar Hijazi is not only suffering from kidney ailment but cardiac problem too.

Sources said that doctors had decided to keep Hijazi in hospital for another 12 hours. He will undergo two test today.

Dr Faisal of the medical board said that Zafaz Hijazi was under FIA custody and it was upto FIA to decide about his stay in the hospital.

He added that they were only treating him. He said that Hijazi was shifted from CCU to a private room.
