KARACHI: Former president Pervez Musharraf was rushed to the PNS Shifa Hospital with sudden pain in his spinal cord Thursday evening.

He remained under medical observation for more than four hours and was later discharged on doctors’ advice.

According to one of his near friends, Musharraf had no chest pain or heart related complication.

“The pain was so acute [in his spinal cord] that the former president was rushed to the hospital and remained in the intensive care unit for a few hours,” he said, adding, “He is in stable condition now.”

Pervez Musharraf acquitted in Akbar Bugti murder case

Musharraf was taken back to home after a medical examination, he added. “He could be looked after better at home,” the aide said.

The former president on January 18 was acquitted in the murder case of Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) leader Nawab Akbar Bugti.

Bugti was killed in a military operation in 2006.

    He apparently had time to wash up and wear some pretty nice clothes before rushing to the hospital – also had time to arrange for PR team to take some photos. Historically his hospital visits tend to coincide with upcoming court appearances.Recommend

    The killer of tens of thousands of innocent Afghans, Kashmiris and Baloch should not be mourned if he passes away. He doesn’t deserve a peaceful death.Recommend

    This chap is on ECL, right? Hmmm. Now that the “Maulana” has pardoned him, he needs a medical reason to leave the country. Keep your eyes peeled for the ex-Commando to be crying with pain soon, needing urgent medical treatment abroad. Recommend

    @Lion King:some people don’t stop crying NRO,NRO
    The people of Pakistan were given a Democratic choice to vote for whom ever they wish,they weren’t happy with General Musharraf’s economic progress,they actually believed the corrupt PPP,PMLN lies of promises of Pakistan progressing, if you vote us into power,plenty of poor illiterate,some corrupt elite class people are devoted PPP,PMLN followers,at the end of the day people of Pakistan vote the corrupt into power,NRO didn’t force the people to vote for PPP or PMLN,Musharraf gave the people a choice to vote for him or Pakistan’s two largest political parties.Recommend
