AHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leader Moonis Elahi was brought to the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) amidst high security for a medical checkup on Monday.
Moonis, who is in Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) custody, had earlier reportedly refused to go to the hospital after the Punjab government had given him permission for medical tests. Dr Naveed, a consultant, the superintendent of Lahore district jail requested the home secretary to allow Moonis to be shifted to the PIC for a medical checkup as he was unwell.
