Akram was neither happy nor satisfied with the attention provided to his wife by Pakistani doctors. Huma, 42, died at the Apollo Hospital in Chennai (India) on October 25 where she got admitted after developing complications in an air ambulance on her way to Singapore from Lahore.
Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has directed top federal health officials to investigate the causes of Huma Akram’s death, the Dawn newspaper reported.
“Wasim Akram has approached the prime minister and requested the government to help and investigate the circumstances which led to his wife’s death,” a top official of the federal government was quoted.
On the former captain’s complaint to the federal government and on the directives of the premier, the federal health ministry has formed a three-member committee comprising top medical professionals who will probe the causes of Huma Akram’s death. The federal health investigators have also been provided with a detailed eight-page medical report of the late Huma. The report also carries a death certificate issued by the Apollo Hospital along with Huma’s medical history. The enquiry team is expected to submit its findings within 10 days.
