LAHORE: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s health deteriorated on Sunday after there was a sudden drop in his platelet count, hospital sources said.
According to sources, Nawaz’s lungs have been affected and his condition is unstable.
Sources said that under the current circumstances, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader cannot be discharged from the hospital.
Nawaz was rushed to Services Hospital from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore detention centre Monday night after his health condition suddenly deteriorated. Earlier, he was shifted from Central Jail Kot Lakhpat to NAB Lahore building at Thokar Niaz Beg after the Bureau got his 14-day physical remand on October 11 in connection with the Chaudhry Sugar Mills corruption case investigation.
On Saturday, the PML-N supremo was granted interim bail in Al-Azizia reference on medical grounds.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Lahore High Court on Friday had approved the bail of former prime minister in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case. The bail was approved on medical grounds.
