Dukhtaran-e-Millat while expressing concern over the deteriorating health conditions of its party chairperson, Asiya Andrabi, on Wednesday castigated the government for putting her life at risk.
In a statement, DeM general secretary, Nahida Nasreen, said that according to the family members of Andrabi and Sofi Fehmeeda, who had gone to Amphalla jail to meet them, the party chairperson has had a serious asthma attack recently and no medical facility has been provided to her.
“The recent asthma attack caused due to unhygienic conditions inside the jail premises and due to denial of medical care has taken a serious toll on the health of Andrabi Sahiba,” she said.
She said that because of the attack, dangerous levels of phlegm has accumulated inside her chest due to which she isn’t able to talk or breathe properly. “She hasn’t slept for the past many nights and her condition is worsening with every passing day as no medical facility has been made available to her since May 18 — the day she was lodged in the Ambphalla jail,” she added.
