Lahore: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s condition had deteriorated in jail due to a kidney disease, a day after his family met him and expressed concern over his health, Pakistan media reported on Sunday.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremos daughter Maryam Nawaz tweeted about his worsening health on Saturday after she along with his personal physician Adnan Khan visited Sharif at the Kot Lakhpat jail here on receiving permission from the countrys interior ministry, according to The Express Tribune newspaper.
Sharif, 69, is in jail since December last year, serving a 7-year imprisonment in the Al Azizia Steel Mills graft case. After meeting her father, Maryam tweeted that his kidney disease had reached the third stage and he felt pain in his arm. The blood tests done yesterday reveal a further raise in his creatinine levels which means his kidney function has deteriorated, Maryam tweeted.
She also said that a letter had been written to the additional chief secretary to request him for a medical specialist to be sent to jail to diagnose Nawazs disease.
