PPP leader Faryal Talpur, who is named in a fake accounts case being probed by the National Accountability Bureau, was shifted from Islamabad’s Polyclinic Hospital to Adiala jail at midnight on Monday. Earlier, Polyclinic Executive Director Dr Shuaib Khan had told media that Talpur was recovering and might be discharged on Sunday after which she would be transferred to Adiala jail. When NAB officials arrived at the hospital to take her away to jail, doctors at the hospital advised against her transfer and said she needed further cardiac treatment. Situation at the hospital grew tense as NAB officials insisted on shifting her to Adiala jail while doctors tried to prevent her transfer. Talpur, who is the sister of PPP Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari, lashed out at the anti-corruption watchdog when its officials carried her away to jail from Polyclinic Hospital in Islamabad.
