Nawaz Shrif shifted to PIMS due to heart complications


Rawalpindi (Web Desk) Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who is serving a 10-year jail term after being convicted for owning assets beyond income in the Avenfield reference, was shifted from Adiala Jail to Islamabad’s Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) after developing serious cardiac complications.
As the convoy of vehicles, including police vans, an armoured personnel carrier and at least two ambulances carrying Sharif reached Pims, his supporters who had gathered at the hospital chanted slogans in his favour.
Pims spokesman Wasim Khwaja said Sharif was in the hospital’s Cardiac Centre and his condition was stable. He said besides hospital security, extra police and paramilitary troops were deployed in and around the premises.
The three-time former prime minister was shifted to the presidential suite of the Cardiac Centre, hospital sources told.
Caretaker Punjab home minister Shaukat Javed said on state-run PTVthat doctors had advised his transfer to hospital after an electrocardiogram had shown “variations”.
“How many days he stays in hospital depends on doctors,” Javed said.
