Pakistan: Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz admitted to hospital

FILE PIC
In Pakistan, Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of jailed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has been admitted to the same hospital where her father is undergoing treatment for low platelet count. The Express Tribune reported that the health condition of 69-year-old Sharif, who was admitted to the Services Hospital in Lahore on Monday from the Kot Lakhpat jail, deteriorated with critically low platelets count.

Sharif's deteriorating health raised alarms bells yesterday as his blood platelet count fell sharply to a life-threatening level of 7,000. He is serving a seven-year prison term in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case since 24th December last year in the wake of the Supreme Court's July 28, 2017 verdict in the Panama Papers case.

He received transfusions of mega units of platelets at the hospital on Tuesday but his condition grew worse. Prime Minister Imran Khan directed the Punjab government to ensure that Nawaz Sharif gets the best possible medical care in accordance with the wishes of his family.
