LAHORE: Prime Minister Imran has issued directives to keep Maryam Nawaz with her father in the same hospital, said Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar, on Thursday.

According to Geo News, the Punjab governor said that Prime Minister Imran had sought a briefing on Maryam and Nawaz’s health. He issued directives to the government to fulfill legal requirements to shift Maryam to the Services Hospital with Nawaz.

Sources claimed that the prime minister also spoke to Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and directed him to make arrangements for Maryam’s stay with her father in Services Hospital.

Nawaz was shifted to Services Hospital from Kot Lakhpat Jail where he is serving an imprisonment sentence in the Al-Aziza Steel Mills reference. Doctors said that Nawaz’s platelet level had decreased dangerously.

On Wednesday, Maryam claimed that she had requested an accountability judge to allow her to meet Nawaz for an hour at Services Hospital but the judge declined. She was transferred to the same hospital after she became ill but was later shifted back to Kot Lakhpat Jail.

PML-N leaders slammed the government for shifting Maryam back to jail, alleging that her medical tests and treatment had not been completed.
