Nawaz Sharif’s treatment in London being considered

ISLAMABAD: Sending former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to London for treatment is being seriously considered, it has been learnt. According to sources, Nawaz’s personal physician Dr Adnan examined the former premier in jail on Sunday and evaluated his medical test conducted over the past few days.

 He has advised Nawaz’s treatment abroad, and it is being claimed that the former premier would be sent to London on August 2. It was also learnt that the former premier had refused to be sent to London. Nawaz, as prime minister, had stayed in London for three months for cardiac surgery.

On the directions of Interim Punjab Home Minister Shaukat Javed, the former prime minister has been shifted to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) amid tight security after his health deteriorated here on Sunday.

Sharif's personal physician also reached the Adiala Jail on Sunday evening to examine him. The Adiala Road was completely sealed from both sides by security forces when Nawaz was shifted to PIMS.
