Pakistan's Tehrik-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan will need to stay in bed for some more time, doctors treating him said on Thursday. This comes as bad news for the legendary cricket turned politician as Pakistan goes for voting on Saturday's historic general elections. Imran Khan sustained injuriesA after a dramatic fall at an election rally last week and will not be able to vote in the poll. Doctors at Shaukat Khanum Hospital, where Khan, 60, was admitted after he suffered fractured vertebrae and a broken rib on Tuesday, said he needs to stay in bed for some more time. The doctors said it would be "impossible" for Mr Khan to travel to Mianwali town, where he is registered as a voter. Shaukat Khanum Hospital chief executive Faisal Sultan too said Mr Khan could not be discharged before the May 11 general election because of his injuries. A decision on discharging Mr Khan will be made only after conducting some more tests, Dr Sultan said.
