Why was former PM Nawaz Sharif shifted to Services Hospital?
*ISLAMABAD - Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was shifted to Lahore’s Services Hospital Monday night after his health deteriorated.*
The National Accountability Bureau decided to shift him to the hospital for a medical check-up after his recent medical reports.
Sharif’s physician, Dr Adnan Khan, has said that his patient has a “critically low” platelet count and requested the authorities to immediately shift Nawaz to a hospital for treatment.
“Today, [I] met former PM NawazSharif for consultation [and] evaluation. He’s visibly unwell [and] has multiple serious life-threatening health issues of acute nature. I have recommended immediate hospitalisation for treatment. The matter is of utmost urgency,” Dr Khan wrote.
A heavy contingent of law enforces was deployed outside the hospital. PML-N workers gathered outside and staged a protest. They demanded the immediate release of their leader. They chanted anti-government and burnt tyres. NAB had to call in the police to handle the situation.
PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said Sharif’s medical reports showed that his condition was critical.
