Pakistan’s former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s condition deteriorated because he may have been given ‘poison’ within the custody of the anti-graft physique, his son Hussain Nawaz alleged on Tuesday.
The three-time former prime minister and supreme chief of the PML-N was shifted to the Services Hospital Lahore late on Monday night time after his condition deteriorated.
Sharif, 69, is serving a 7-year jail time period since December 24, 2018 when the accountability courtroom convicted him within the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case – one of many three corruption circumstances filed in following the Supreme Court’s 2017 order within the Panama Papers scandal.
“My father might have been given poison as his platelets were critically low when he was shifted to hospital,” Hussain tweeted from London.
He stated the Imran Khan authorities will have to offer reply for not shifting Sharif to hospital on time regardless of his critically low platelets depend – 16,000, as per his recent medical reviews.
“While a substantially reduced platelets count is in itself very serious and potentially life threatening why his father was not shifted to hospital. Will the government explain this?” he requested.
A medical board headed by Dr Ayaz Mahmood on Tuesday examined Sharif on the hospital and transfused platelets to him.
“Sharif’s platelets count has increased to 20,000 from 2,000,” PML-N chief Attaullah Tarar advised PTI. He stated docs stated that condition of Sharif remains to be “serious” and he will stay in hospital until it improves.
According to docs, regular platelets depend ranges between 150,000 and 400,000.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) beneath whose custody Sharif is, stated: “Sharif’s condition is stable now. He is getting treatment in the hospital and his condition is improving.”
