ISLAMABAD: President Mamnoon Hussain on Monday directed caretaker prime minister Justice (retd) Nasirul Mulk to ensure that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is provided complete medical treatment.
The president telephoned the caretaker premier and urged, "Nawaz should be provided with all medical facilities."
President Mamnoon expressed concern over the former premier's health, who is presently incarcerated in Rawalpindi's Adiala jail for corruption.
The caretaker government wanted the medical board to cross-check the report of Major General (retd) Dr Azhar Mehmood Kiyani, head of Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology (RIC), on Nawaz's health, sources said.
A team of health officials led by Dr Kiyani carried out the former premier's medical check-up at Central Jail Rawalpindi on Sunday.
As per last night's medical report, a copy of which is available with *Geo News*, there is a risk of Nawaz's kidneys failing due to a lack of water.
"Heat and lack of sleep have also affected the former premier's health," the report stated.
