LAHORE: The top leadership of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and family members met ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif at Kot Lakhpat jail on Thursday.
According to the Express News, former president Mamnoon Hussain, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Senator Pervaiz Rasheed, Ayaz Sadiq, Mushashid Hussain Syed, Ahsan Iqbal and Talal Chaudhry along with others party leaders met Nawaz during the visitation hours.
A huge number of PML-N workers had also gathered outside the prison to show their support when Nawaz’s family reached the premises.
A special medical board, comprising cardiac experts from Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology (AFIC), Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) and Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology (RIC), conducted a detailed examination of the former premier on Wednesday.
Nawaz’s family urged that he should be shifted to a hospital as the PML-N supremo was not getting proper medical facilities in the prison.
The ousted premier has been behind the bars in Kot Lakhpat since December 24, 2018, after an accountability court convicted him in a corruption reference filed in line with the apex court’s July 28, 2017 verdict.
