LONDON: Former finance minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Ishaq Dar’s condition deteriorated later on Sunday, following which his doctors advised immediate operation to treat his neck and back pain.

Speaking to Geo News, Dar’s son Ali Ishaq said that his father’s pain got quite worse on Sunday night, adding that due to the weekend the family faced issues with the availability of surgeons.

Ali Dar said that his father is undergoing cervical nerve root intervention under anesthesia in London.

“We drove to Nuffield Health Hospital this morning where he (Ishaq Dar) got admitted. Currently, he is under anesthesia and the procedure is underway. He will probably be shifted to a room in another 2 hours,” said Ali Dar.

He said that the doctors will continue to monitor his father and advise further action plan later on. 

In 2017, Dar went to London to receive medical treatment for his heart condition, he has remained in the UK ever since.
