Former PM Nawaz Sharif health condition critical in hospital
ISLAMABAD - The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday adjourned until 3pm the hearing of a bail petition filed by PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif for the release of former premier Nawaz Sharif from the custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on medical grounds.
According to his test reports, his white blood cell count is low and dropping. PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal has said that his true condition is being hidden from his family. “They ran stories in the media saying his platelet count was at 20,000 when it was really at 6,000 according to his test reports,” he said.
Sources in his family say that they will show the PML-N founder’s test reports to other doctors for second opinions. So far, they have already shown the reports to some doctors in the UK, who say his condition is very severe.
They say he needs another check-up before his treatment can start.
Moreover, Nawaz’s lawyer Ashtar Ausaf told the court today that the former premier’s condition link was “extremely serious”.
According to the news report, Hussain Nawaz, son of Nawaz Sharif, had alleged that reduction in platelets of his father might be the result of some kind of “poisoning”. Tweeting from London, he said: “Thrombocytopenia as a manifestation of poisoning. If anything happens to Nawaz Sharif -you know who are responsible for this.”
