Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is “critically unwell” and has been receiving treatment for an undiagnosed blood platelet disorder, while in custody on corruption charges, according to doctor here on Tuesday.

“Former PM Nawaz Sharif, critically unwell, is fighting the battle for his life,” said Adnan Khan, the Sharif family’s personal physician. “I have never seen him in such an alarming condition. We may lose him,” said Nawaz’s personal physician present at Islamabad High Court hearing.
Earlier in the day, the high court suspended his sentence for eight weeks and granted him bail in a corruption case.
The court said, two surety bonds of Rs 20 lakh each would have to be submitted to secure Nawaz’s release. For an extension in bail, the Punjab government should be approached, it added.
During the hearing, the court asked doctors, whether it was possible for Nawaz to recover without staying in the hospital. The doctors replied in negative.
The doctors informed the court Nawaz had been given 80 injections to bring to normal his platelet count, which was dropped to dangerous levels.
