The famous Pakistani author, Tehmina Durrani expressed her grievance over her husband, Shehbaz Sharif's condition in a tweet on Sunday.

After meeting with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president on Saturday she said that the visit has 'disturbed' her due to her husband's current predicament.

Durrani reiterated that Shehbaz is a cancer survivor and regularly underwent blood tests and Positron emission tomography (PET) scans, performed by his doctor in London.

Shehbaz’s medical reports reveal signs of cancer

However, recent blood test reports of PML-N president, taken at the Poly Clinic Hospital in Islamabad, revealed signs of cancer returning. Following the reports, doctors recommended to resume the treatment and proposed a larger medical board comprising cancer experts to be formed for examination.

In her Sunday tweet, raising questions over the delay in the formation of the medical board to examine her husband, Durrani said, "A board of Drs was to be constituted ... That has still not happened. WHY?"



Sharif family to meet Shehbaz today

In November, after a series of medical examinations ordered by the court, it surfaced that Shehbaz was suffering from a kidney infection, a lymph node in his chest with chances of recurrence of cancer.

The PML-N leader has been in custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in connection to the Aashiana Housing Scheme case since October 5.

Shehbaz’s family has been granted permission to meet him on Sunday at NAB Lahore office.
