LAHORE: Renowned preacher and religious scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel underwent angioplasty on Tuesday night at a local hospital in Lahore.
The religious scholar was hospitalised after complaining of chest pain.
Doctors treating the scholar said that they had successfully implanted a stent into the religious scholar’s clogged artery to clear the blockage.
The stent will hold the artery open and allow a free flow of blood.
Maulana has been advised complete rest for some time.
A day earlier, the maulana was admitted to a hospital after complaining of chest pain. He was then shifted to a private hospital in Lahore’s Johar Town after suffering from angina.
