Nawaz examined by PIC doctors at Kot Lakhpat jail


LAHORE: Former Prime Minister  Nawaz Sharif was examined by doctors from Punjab Institute of Cardiology at Kot Lakhpat Jail on Wednesday.

Doctors, on request of jail superintendent, checked Nawaz’s sugar level and blood pressure, sources informed.

On Monday, a doctor had already informed Nawaz after a routine checkup that his life is at risk and precautionary measures must be adopted to avert any life-threatening condition.

“Yesterday around 04 AM in the morning he felt unwell & breathless, requested guards to open cell door as he choked,” tweeted Dr. Adnan Khan. “It took a while for him to settle after using sublingual nitrate spray. His life is at risk. This is a warning.”

Maryam Nawaz also expressed her displeasure after the report given by the doctor. She complained that she is not being allowed to meet her own father who is suffering from different ailments.

On March 26, the Supreme Court had granted him a six-week bail on medical grounds, which ended on May 7 and he surrendered to jail authorities the following night.
