Islamabad, May 30 (PTI) Imran Khan on Tuesday slapped a Rs 10 billion defamation notice on Pakistan's Health Minister Abdul Qadir Patel for his "disparaging and malicious" claims about the former prime minister's mental health and allegations that his urine sample showed evidence of toxic chemicals like alcohol and cocaine.

Patel on Friday addressed a press conference on the medical reports of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party chief issued after the collection of samples at the premier Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) here following his arrest in the Al-Qadir Trust corruption case on May 9.

The health minister said the report indicated excessive alcohol consumption, no information about a fracture on his leg, and unstable mental health.
