Pakistan Peoples Party leader Sharjeel Inam Memon was shifted to Karachi Central Jail on Saturday after Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar found alcohol bottles, cigarettes and drugs in his hospital room during a surprise visit. Earlier today before taking up cases at the Supreme Court’s Karachi Registry, the chief justice made surprise visits to three private hospitals and examined the rooms of political prisoners. As the chief justice entered the former Sindh information minister’s room on the sixth floor of Karachi’s Ziauddin Hospital, which had been declared sub-jail, no nurse or doctor was present.
