Imran Khan leaves hospital after poll campaign fall

Khan,who fell from a fork-lift during a poll campaign,has been fitted with a spinal brace.

Pakistani cricket-hero-turned-politician Imran Khan left hospital on Wednesday after treatment for back injuries suffered in a fall in Lahore,television stations said.

Khan,who has been fitted with a spinal brace to aid recovery,fell from a fork-lift taking him to a poll campaign podium on May 7.

A general election four days later handed a landslide victory to Nawaz Sharif and his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). But Khan’s campaign electrified many,pushing his Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) from a marginal party to the country’s third-largest.

Khan walked out of hospital by a back exit,avoiding reporters,television said.
