Prime News, International (Rawalpindi), July 24:- Former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif has declined to be shifted to a hospital despite his health condition deteriorating in Adiala jail in Rawalpindi. Pakistan-based Dawn News quoted a jail official on condition of anonymity as saying that the former prime minister wants treatment to be provided to him inside the prison itself.
This comes after Pakistan media reported that Nawaz Sharif is in need of urgent medical attention and his kidney is on the verge of collapse. The same was confirmed by a medical board that examined him on Sunday.
Pakistan’s Express News had quoted sources as saying that Sharif has kidney-related complications and that a medical board examining him has recommended that he be transferred to a hospital as soon as possible. The doctors reportedly also said that the medical centre within the jail did not have facilities to provide IV fluid to patients. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
