Lahore (22nd Oct, 2019): Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is likely to ‘recover’ in the next 24 to 48 hours after a blood transfusion: PML-N MNA Ahsan Iqbal.
While addressing to media Ahsan Iqbal said “The government is deliberately denying him medical care and trying to harm his health”.
Nawaz was shifted to Services Hospital Lahore yesterday night after his health deteriorated.
His younger brother, Former Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif, visited him in the Services hospital. He told reporters that Nawaz’s platelet count fell quickly in NAB’s custody and it worried him. He said that NAB showed “criminal negligence”.
Ahsan Iqbal, however, said that his party would hold PM Imran Khan responsible if any harm comes to his leader Nawaz Sharif.
The National Accountbilty Bureau spokesperson said a test for dengue virus was conducted, which came negative. He said his low platelet count could be because of the blood thinners prescribed to him by his physician.
Nawaz had been shifted from Kot Lakhpat jail to NAB’s Lahore building after his arrest in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case. The former prime minister is serving a seven-year imprisonment in the Al-Azizia case.
