Ex-Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif arrives in UK for treatment


Pakistan's ailing former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif arrived in London of United Kingdom in an air ambulance for medical treatment on Tuesday evening, reports Times of India.

He will reportedly consult doctors in the city about his ill-health.

Sharif arrived in London via Doha in Qatar in the air ambulance equipped with an intensive care unit (ICU) and an operation theatre with a team of doctors and paramedics on board.

He was later taken to Avenfield House in London's Park Lane area.

The ailing leader was accompanied by his younger brother Shehbaz Sharif and personal physician Dr Adnan Khan.

Sources had earlier told ANI that Sharif will be admitted to London's Charlestown Clinic.

Sharif has secured an eight-week bail on medical grounds from the Islamabad high court in the Al-Azizia Mills corruption case.

He was serving seven years imprisonment in connection with the case.

Sharif, who has been diagnosed with an immune system disorder, was recommended by doctors to go abroad as his condition continued to deteriorate despite treatment. Doctors were struggling to bring his platelet count that had dropped to dangerous levels back to normal.
