Former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif who was arrested on July 13 is on the “verge of a kidney failure”, reports in Pakistan media suggested.
A report by Pakistani publication Tribune said that Nawaz Sharif is on the verge of a kidney failure. A medical board has recommended his immediate trasfer to a hospital from Adiala Jail.
The medical board said that the jail’s hospital doesn’t have the necessary facilities to treat Nawaz Sharif.
Doctors who examined Nawaz Sharif in jail said he is suffering from dehydration, blood urea has increased to dangerous levels, heart rate has increased and must be shifted to a hospital immediately, news agency ANI said quoting Pakistani media outlets.
Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif were arrested in Lahore on July 13. The father-daughter duo was returning to Pakistan from London for the first time after being convicted in the Avenfield property case.
Last year, after the Panama Papers were leaked, Nawaz Sharif, his three children and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar was accused of corruption in the Avenfield case. The Sharif family was accused of keeping flats nearly worth Rs 63 crore through illegal sources. Nawaz’s family, on the other hand, said that the ownership belongs to Nawaz’s sons.
