ISLAMABAD: Doctors at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) have ruled out shifting of Nawaz Sharif back to jail anytime soon until his health condition stabilises.
Doctors have said former premier Nawaz Sharif’s health is improving.
Rejecting news reports that the former premier has been shifted from the hospital back to Adiala jail, where he is currently incarcerated for corruption, the doctors said Nawaz’s blood tests will be conducted again today.
Last night, Nawaz’s sugar, blood pressure and ECG (electrocardiogram) were not normal which is why all tests will be conducted again today, the doctors said.
The decision to shift Nawaz back to Adiala jail depends on his health, the doctors said.
However, they added that he may require constant monitoring for four to five days.
A complete report regarding the former premier’s health will be forwarded to the concerned authorities, they added.
Nawaz was shifted from Adiala Jail to PIMS’ cardiac ward on the orders of the caretaker government on Sunday.
The former premier was admitted to PIMS' coronary care unit on doctors' advice, who examined him after he complained of chest pain. A notification issued later declared the medical facility's cardiac ward as a 'sub-jail'.
