KARACHI: Abdul Sattar Edhi, the country’s leading humanitarian, was shifted to Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) on Monday after he experienced weakness, said Edhi’s spokesperson Anwar Kazmi. However, it was nothing major, he added.

Edhi is being kept under observation at the institute and will be discharged tomorrow, the spokesperson said, adding that Edhi goes to SIUT often for his check-ups.

Edhi fell unconscious at the Edhi Home in Sohrab Goth after seeing the bodies of the would-be migrants who were travelling to Iran, and were killed by militants on Friday.

He recovered after being taken outside the centre for some fresh air.

His son, Faisal Edhi, had told The Express Tribune that the immense workload along with the shock of the sight before him contributed to his low blood pressure.
