RAWALPINDI: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was medically examined by the medical board today.
A five-member medical board formed by Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) on Monday visited Rawalpindi's Adiala jail today, where Nawaz is presently incarcerated for corruption, to conduct a check-up of the former premier after his health condition reportedly worsened.
The medical board along with a mobile laboratory reached the Adiala jail this morning. Nawaz was shifted from his cell to the hospital facility in the prison for check-up, sources told Geo News.
Following the check-up, sources close to the Sharif family claimed the board suggested that the former premier is shifted to a hospital over fears that his condition may deteriorate if he remains in jail.
However, sources said Nawaz is adamant that he remain in prison and use the facilities available there.
On the contrary, official sources revealed the medical board has decided to wait for test reports before making a decision on Nawaz's treatment outside jail.
