According to Pakistan’s former PM Nawaz Sharif’s doctor, he is fighting for life after suffering from a minor heart attack. The three time Pak leader is currently in a Lahore hospital.
Nawaz Sharif had been serving a prison sentence in a corruption case in which he was given the sentence of 7 years imprisonment. He still denies all charges against him and claims it to be a conspiracy of the rivals. His political career had ended over the allegations back in 2017 and he’d been serving the sentence since then.
The ‘Lion of Punjab’ had managed to receive an indefinite bail from the courts on the grounds of poor health, a post which he had been admitted in a hospital in the eastern city. He’s no allowed to go abroad, though, as he’s on a stop list. On Tuesday, his personal physician, Adnan Khan had tweeted of him being critically unwell.
“Former PM Nawaz Sharif, critically unwell, is fighting the battle for his health & life,” he tweeted.
Nawaz Sharif is 69 years old now and was taken to the hospital last week after his blood platelet count had reached below the dangerous marks.
