ISLAMABAD: In what appeared to be a shocking revelation, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has stated that a senior leader of the Afghan Taliban militant movement was recently treated at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, in Lahore.

In an interview with a private TV channel, the PTI chairman made the confession. While speaking about the successes of the year 2015, Imran Khan said that the inauguration of the Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital in Peshawar was one of his biggest achievements in the outgoing year.

He proudly appraised the management of SKMCH Lahore, confessing that the hospital was so successful that even a senior Afghan Taliban leader went through treatment there. He stated that the Taliban later even wrote him a letter, thanking him for the Taliban leader's treatment there.

The PTI chairman said that he got to know that the senior Afgan Taliban leader was treated there only when he received the letter. He said that many people from Afghanistan come to the SKMCH in Lahore for medical treatment.
