Former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who had earlier refused to move out of Adiala jail despite deteriorating health conditions, has now been shifted to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences in Islamabad. Pakistan-based Dawn News TV reported that Sharif was shifted from the Rawalpindi jail to hospital following “serious cardiac complications”.
While Sharif’s condition is said to be stable, his sugar level has increased and increase in stress has also impacted the health condition. The decision to move Sharif to hospital was taken on Sunday after ECG and irregular blood reports.
According to PTI, a team of doctors had recommended that Sharif was in the need of proper medical care, citing that he had been suffering from acute pain in both his arms possibly because of inadequate blood circulation.
