Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law captain (r) Safdar is being shifted to PIMS Hospital as his health continues to deteriorate in Adiala Jail.

Severe security arrangements have been placed in and around premises of PIMS hospital to avoid any untoward situation. Safdar is suffering from stomach ulcers and doctors have performed two operations on his stomach.

Earlier, members of Sharif family, including Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif, 25 party’s leaders and 15 others political leaders called on the imprisoned Nawaz Sharif, his political heir-apparent Maryam Safdar and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar at Adiala Jail.

Mehmood Khan Achakzai and Javed Hashmi were allowed to meet Adiala inmates after one hour of delay. Nawaz, Maryam and Safdar have been handed over 11-year jail sentence, 7-year jail sentence and 1-year jail respectively by an accountability court in Avenfield reference. The hearing of two others references is underway.

The three graft references were filed by National Accountability Bureau on directives of Supreme Court of Pakistan in light of landmark Panamagate verdict.
