PESHAWAR, 12 September: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has given a cheque of Rs300,000 to the family of the ailing Pashto and Hindko actor Iftikhar Qaiser for his medical treatment.

The KP Culture Department Director Ajmal Khan visited the Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar on Monday to inquire after the health of the famous actor and handed over the cheque to his sons. Ajmal Khan said while talking to media that Iftikhar Qaiser is a great asset for the country. He said the provincial government had earlier paid Rs750,000 for the treatment of Iftikhar Qaiser.

Iftikhar Qaiser, who is suffering from kidney disease, was brought to Lady Reading Hospital in critical condition three days ago. He was lying under the open sky in a stretcher due to unavailability of bed in the hospital. However, a bed was provided to him on the intervention of the media. Doctors say both the kidneys of the senior actor have failed.

Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb had also expressed concern on the condition of Iftikhar Qaiser and announced that the federal government will bear his treatment expenses.

KP Health Minister Shahram Tarakai had also taken notice of negligence in the treatment of Iftikhar Qaiser and had stated that the provincial government will provide him free of cost treatment. He said that Iftikhar Qaiser was in the ICU and he was personally monitoring his treatment.
