Pakistan former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who has been admitted to the hospital since Monday night, has suffered a minor heart attack, according to media report on Saturday.

According to sources at the Services Hospital in Lahore, Nawaz was tested positive for certain tests which confirm that he suffered a minor cardiac arrest, Geo news reported.

The results of his echocardiography and electrocardiogram were however normal, sources further added.

The PML-N supremo had been under treatment for various diseases since the last five days and was shifted to the Services Hospital from Kot Lakhpat jail because of deteriorating health amidst an incredibly low platelet count.

According to cardiology experts at Services Hospital, medical reports showed an abnormal increase in the former premier.

Earlier on Thursday, a doctor confirmed that Sharif’s health condition was dangerous, prompting it to adjourn a hearing of a petition seeking suspension in a corruption case and bail on medical grounds.

PM Imran Khan on Thursday issued directives to allow PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz to stay with her ailing father, former premier Nawaz Sharif in the same hospital in Lahore, according to Punjab province Governor Chaudhary Muhammad Sarwar.

However, on Wednesday evening, Sharif’s health condition deteriorated after his platelets count again fell sharply to a life-threatening level of 7,000.

Nawaz Sharif, who had been shifted from the Kot Lakhpat Jail where he is serving seven-year imprisonment in the Al-Azizia corruption case to the NAB’s Lahore building following his arrest in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case, hospitalised on Monday night after a decline in his platelet count.

In August, two government hospitals had denied a specialised cardiac ambulance facility for emergency medical cover to Nawaz Sharif in the Central Jail.
