Karachi: Pakistan Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, has directed concerned authorities to provide necessary financial assistance to former Pakistan captain and legendary batsman, Hanif Mohammed, who rued the lack of government support in his fight against cancer.
Hanif, who underwent a complicated operation and stayed in London this year for the treatment of liver cancer, had rued on his 79th birthday celebrated last Saturday that he had to take loans to finance his expensive treatment.
Hanif had complained that he was facing loans of around seven million Pakistani rupees spent on his treatment. “The PCB didn’t bother to inquire from me about how I was managing things and this is very painful,” Hanif said. (PTI)
