“I have not observed any symptoms of slow poisoning to the PTI chief, who appears to be in good health and fit, and is even carrying out regular exercise in jail,” he added.
Dr Sultan said that the PTI chairman had also not made any complaints regarding the food being served to him in jail.
“PTI chairman has not complained about the food and is carrying out regular exercise in the jail.”
The legal team has also met the PTI chairman at the Adiala Jail today. The legal team members include Hamid Khan, Naeem Haider Panjota, Raja Yasir and Umair Niazi, whereas, Dr Faisal Sultan had also joined them.
Earlier today, Rawalpindi police investigators reached Adiala Jail and recorded the PTI chairman’s statement on the May 9 riots.
Khan, currently detained, had his initial conviction for the illicit sale of state gifts challenged, and although a higher court suspended his sentence, he remains in custody facing charges related to a leaked diplomatic cable.
Amid his ongoing incarceration, Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party has voiced concerns over his well-being, sparking rumors of foul play.
