Sharif’s health condition improves, shifted back to Adiala jail

Prime News, International (Islamabad), August 1:- Former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who was undergoing treatment for ‘serious cardiac complications’ at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) in Islamabad, has now been shifted back to Adiala jail in Rawalpindi.
News agency PTI quoted sources in the PIMS as saying that various tests were performed on him, which showed a lot of improvement in his health, following which the doctors decided to shift him back to the jail.
They said Sharif also expressed willingness to go back to jail, pointing that he was not ready to go to the hospital in the first place and only agreed when his jailed daughter and her husband convinced him to follow doctors’ advice. Heavy security measures were taken to shift him back to jail. A convoy of 11 security vehicles escorted him to jail.
Pakistan-based Dawn News had earlier reported that no one was allowed to meet the former prime minister in the hospital and the floor where he was admitted was declared a sub-jail. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
