Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz has refused to move from Adiala jail in Rawalpindi to the rest house of Sihala Police Training College in Islamabad.

Sources told The Express Tribune that the urea nitrogen in Nawaz Sharif's blood has climbed up to unsafe levels, his heartbeat is irregular and he is suffering from dehydration and excessive sweating.

"I appeal once again to the caretaker government to shift Nawaz to a hospital based on the medical board's report", Shehbaz said while adding that he has serious concerns regarding Nawaz's health worsening in jail. His heartbeat is irregular and he is suffering from dehydration and excessive sweating.

It is to be mentioned here that Sharif family's lawyers Khawaja Harris and Amjad Pervez were allowed to meet ex-PM, his daughter and son-in-law in jail after proper checking. It is necessary to take him to hospital.

A jail administration official told Dawn that the medical team, led by retired General Azhar Kiani, visited Adiala jail and after medical check-up said Sharif needed to be hospitalised for immediate treatment. Sources said that the caretaker government feared that an untoward incident could happen while shifting Nawaz from the jail to the accountability court.
