Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal was discharged from Lahore’s Services Hospital on Monday.
Iqbal was shot at and injured during a corner meeting in Narowal’s Kanjrur tehsil on May 6.
He was hurriedly rushed to District Headquarters Hospital Narowal but was later airlifted to Services Hospital in Lahore where he has since been convalescing.
Police had arrested a 22-year-old man, who had confessed to opening fire on the minister due to the Khatm-i-Nubuwat issue.
Upon being discharged from the hospital, Iqbal visited his mother’s grave at the Johar Town. Speaking to the media outside the hospital, Iqbal’s son thanked them for their “genuine concern and responsible reporting.”
The interior minister spent nine days at the Services Hospital and according to Services Hospital’s officials he is in a lot better shape than before.
