PTI chief Imran Khan prayed for jailed former PM Nawaz Sharif’s health.

The three-time premier and his daughter, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, have been in jail since July 13 when they returned to Pakistan from London. The two have been serving their sentence in the Avenfield corruption case in Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail. On Sunday, Nawaz was moved to Islamabad’s Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) Hospital after blood-clotting was reported in the jail. Maryam met him before he left the jail for the hospital.

Caretaker home minister for Punjab, Shaukat Javed, said on state-run Pakistan Television that 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.

A team of experts under Dr Naeem Malik examined the former prime minister at the cardiac ward of PIMS. They checked Nawaz’s blood pressure, blood sugar level, pulse rate and heartbeat. They collected samples of his blood and urine. Nawaz was then shifted to a private room.

More tests pertaining to the heart and kidneys will be conducted on Monday (today).

The cardiac ward of PIMS has been declared a sub-jail for Nawaz, said a chief commissioner’s notification.

Nawaz is fighting for his political life after his party, the PML-N, lost an election on Wednesday to the rival PTI led by former cricket hero Imran Khan. His brother, Shehbaz Sharif, who heads the party now, has rejected election results along with other parties who have demanded fresh elections and announced they would protest against alleged election rigging. The protests announcement late Friday came as the United States, the European Union and other observers aired reservations over widespread allegations of irregularities in the election.

Khan’s victory represents an end to decades of rotating leadership between the PML-N and the Bhutto dynasty’s PPP that was punctuated by periods of military rule.
