Nawaz shifted to PIMS from Adiala jail

Former premier Nawaz Sharif on Sunday was shifted to akistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) from Adiala prison on the orders of the caretaker government.
Doctors conducted a check-up of the former premier after he complained of chest pain and advised that he be shifted to a coronary care unit (CCU) immediately, sources said.
Following this, the jail superintendent contacted the additional chief secretary. “In light of the additional chief secretary’s report, the caretaker government decided to shift Nawaz to PIMS,” sources in the Interior Ministry said.
“Nawaz’s electrocardiogram (ECG) was conducted and showed changes as per the medical report,” sources said.
On July 24, a medical board formed to ascertain his health said the former prime minister was in need of constant medical care and attention.
A five-member medical board formed by PIMS had conducted a medical check-up of Nawaz in Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail on Monday, where the PML-N quaid is serving his sentence for corruption.
