Rawalpindi (July 22, 2018): Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is reportedly ‘on the verge of kidney failure’ and a medical board has recommended his immediate transfer from Adiala jail to a hospital.
Urea nitrogen in Sharif’s blood had risen to a dangerous level, and he is suffering from excessive sweating and dehydration due to humidity in the prison. His heartbeat is also irregular, said sources. According to insiders, a medical board examined the former prime minister today.

If physicians, who examine Sharif, officially recommend his treatment in a hospital, a medical board would be constituted to examine the ex-PM’s health and action would be taken in the light of related recommendations of the board, the official said.On Saturday, Nawaz’s incarcerated son-in-law Capt Safdar reportedly fell ill and the paramedical staff was called to assess his condition.
