RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: Doctors have advised the ex-premier Nawaz Sharif be immediately sifted to intensive care unit (ICU) from Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail.
A medical board comprising of cardiologist Dr. Nadeem Malik, medical specialist Dr. Shaji Siddiqui, neurologist Dr. Sohail Tanvir, Dr. Mashood, and headed by Dr. Ejaz Qadeer carried out medical checkup of the former PM after he complained about pain in his arm and heart.
Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) team said that Nawaz Sharif is unwell as he is suffering from heart disease, glyceride, cholesterol and diabetes. Jail sources told that Nawaz’s ECG was not satisfactory.
Meanwhile, interim Punjab Home Minister Shaukat Javed has decided to shift ex-premier to PIMS hospital for proper medical facilities.
It is to be mentioned here that PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif wrote a letter to caretaker Punjab government seeking better facilities for them at Adiala Jail.
Shehbaz had asked the authorities to ensure continuous provision of medicines and medical examination to Nawaz Sharif from his personal doctor.
Nawaz Sharif was arrested along with his daughter Maryam Nawaz upon arrival and the Allama Iqbal International Airport from London on July 13 and was shifted to Adiala Jail where he is serving the sentence awarded to him in the Avenfield reference case by the accountability court.
