PESHAWAR - Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre Peshawar was inaugurated by a cancer patient Faakhir Afridi here on Tuesday.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan was also present on the inauguration ceremony besides officials and elite of the City in large numbers.

Speaking in the inauguration ceremony, PTI Chief Imran Khan said that construction of state of the art Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital in Peshawar was his dream that came true today and he feels immense happiness.

This cancer hospital would not only provide the state-of-the-art treatment facilities to residents of Khyber Pakthunkhwa but also to the people of remote areas of the country, he said.

“Everything is possible in this world if somebody work with professional dedication and have a clear goal in mind,” he said.

Imran Khan said treatment of cancer was very expensive and Rs seven to Rs nine lakh was required for its complete treatment, adding, poor patients can’t afford cancer treatment and they will get free of cost treatment in the hospital on equality basis.


A deaf and mute person was thrown out of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital as Imran Khan was inaugurating the medical facility.

According to details, Imran Khan was inaugurating SKMCH when a deaf and mute youngster tried to meet the hospital’s founder.

The security officials and police behaved rudely with the youngster and threw him out of the hospital.

The students of Khyber Medical College protested against the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government on the arrival of Imran Khan.

They demanded the provincial government to restore their scholarships as their future is at stake.

The KP government has stopped the scholarships of the students of Khyber Medical College.
