Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif reached his residence at Jati Umra on Wednesday where a specialised intensive care unit has been set up for his treatment.
His daughter, PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz, was formally released from National Accountability Bureau’s custody earlier in the day after her robkar (release orders) were issued by an accountability court.
The former premier and his daughter had both departed from Lahore’s Services Institute of Medical Sciences, where they had been admitted since October 23 and 24, respectively.
Nawaz, immediately upon his arrival at Jati Umra, paid a visit to the graves of his father Mian Sharif and wife Kulsoom Nawaz and offered prayers. His mother, Begum Shamim; Maryam; her husband, Captain (Retd) Mohammad Safdar; and brother, Shahbaz Sharif accompanied him.
It was earlier reported that the father-daughter duo, accompanied by Shahbaz and Safdar, were en route to the Sharif Medical City Hospital in an ambulance.
However, in a statement, PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said that an intensive care unit has been set up at the former premier’s residence.
She said that the special medical unit had been set up on doctors’ recommendations with a view to safeguarding against threats to his health.
