A medical board comprising senior doctors of Polyclinic Hospital has been set up to examine former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz in Adiala jail and to submit a report on their health to NAB.

Senior physician Dr Asif will head the medical board which also comprises Dr Hamid Iqbal, Dr Imtiaz Ahmed and Dr Asma Kayani.

The board has been constituted on a request by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). It will examine the ex-PM and his daughter in Adiala jail after their arrival and submit a report on their health to the bureau.

After nearly a month-long stay, the PML-N supreme leader and his daughter began their journey to Pakistan from London’s Heathrow Airport late on Thursday.
