Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif was shifted back to Adiala Jail from hospital on Tuesday evening after doctors signalled an improvement in his health.
Sharif, 68, was admitted to the Cardiac Centre of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) in Islamabad after his health deteriorated due to heart trouble in the jail on Sunday night.
Sources in the PIMS said that various tests were performed on him, which showed a lot of improvement in his health, and doctors decided to shift him back to the jail.
They said Sharif also expressed willingness to go back to jail, as he was not ready to go the to hospital in first place, and only agreed when his jailed daughter and her husband convinced him to follow doctors’ advice.
Heavy security measures were taken to shift him back to jail. A convoy of 11 security vehicles escorted him to jail.
The three-time Pakistan premier is serving a 10-year jail term in a corruption case over his family’s purchase of luxury apartments in London. He has been lodged in the Adiala Jail since July 13.
