He has petitioned for sentence suspension on the basis of his deteriorating health.

Nawaz’s lawyer has submitted his medical reports with the petition too.

According to the petition, all doctors have said that Nawaz’s condition is quite critical. A medical board said that he is suffering from various diseases that can prove to be fatal too.
