Govt to bear expenses of Hanif Mohammad’s treatment

‘Little master’ not well

Karachi—Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday directed the government to bear all expenses for the treatment of Pakistani cricket legend Hanif Mohammad, who is currently suffering from respiratory complications after being diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago, Radio Pakistan reported.
The PM ordered the concerned authorities to utilise all available resources for Hanif Mohammad’s treatment. Hanif, 81, was shifted to a hospital after a two-week-long struggle with breathing problems and congestion, according to his son Shoaib Mohammad.
After being diagnosed with lung cancer in 2013, Hanif underwent surgery in London which helped bring it under control, Shoaib said. “But the cancer spread with time.”
“We sent the latest biopsy to our doctor in London and he said that chemotherapy will not be an effective option for further treatment.”
