Media reports came up that the business tycoon Malik Riaz is suffering from Cancer. Well, the news is not true. The Family of Bahria Town owner has completely denied the news. The family said that Malik Riaz did visited London for treatment but he is suffering from no disease.
A statement was given to a local media in which Malik Riaz family denied the statement stating, “Malik Riaz went to London for medical treatment but he doesn’t suffer from cancer.”
Adding, “Media should not air rumours about his health.”
Furthermore, regarding the contempt case against him, Riaz has given a request to the Supreme Court to change the date the case.
The lawyer of Riaz has filed a petition asking to extend the hearing by 12 weeks.
The petition stated that Malik Riaz is not feeling well and needs sometime so that he can get treatment in London. He needs at least 8 weeks of recovery, thus he can appear in court only after that.
However, the Supreme Court had to take up the contempt case against him on 7th February.
The case against Malik Riaz is for accusing the ex Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry and his son Dr Arsalan Iftikhar during a press conference back in 2012 of financial misconduct.
