KARACHI: The jail authorities have submitted a report regarding the alcohol bottles recovered from former provincial information minister Sharjeel Inam Memon’s room to higher authorities.

Deputy Inspector-General (DIG) Prisons Nasir Aftab said that the report consists of two parts. The first part is related to manipulation or elimination of evidence from the hospital room, declared as sub-jail by the authorities and negligence of jail staff on duty. The second part deals with the blood samples of Memon and his medical report.

No alcohol found in Sharjeel Memon’s bloodstream, says medical report

Speaking to the The Express Tribune, Aftab said that there was 100% proof to establish the tampering of evidence from the hospital room, but there was no evidence to suggest that the medical report of Memon’s blood sample was tampered with.

He added that if blood test reports were suspected of manipulation, Memon’s DNA test could be carried out. He further added that strict action had been suggested against the negligent jail staff.

    Agha Khan hospital who conducted the test have already said that they were given the blood for testing. Means Mr. Memon never came to the hospital to go be in person. Thus tampered Recommend

    CDT Test (Carbohydrate-Defecient-Transferin) is a very simple test that can prove that a person has been drinking Alchohol in the past weeks. Will be positive even if a fresh blood alcohol test is negative. Whats the big problem in identifying then?Recommend
