RAWALPINDI - Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Saqib Nisar on Sunday underwent angioplasty at Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology, where remains admitted until full recovery.

The top judge was brought to the hospital in tight security after he complained of chest pain on Sunday morning. Doctors say they have fitted two stents in his heart. He is said to be out of danger and recovering from the minimally invasive surgical procedure.
