Former Pakistani premier Nawaz Sharif, jailed earlier this month over graft charges, has fallen sick inside prison and is being moved to hospital, a minister said Sunday. Caretaker home minister for Punjab province Shaukat Javed said on state-run Pakistan Television that doctors had advised his transfer to hospital after an electrocardiogram had shown “variations”. “How many days he stays in hospital depends on doctors,” Javed said, adding that the former PM was being transferred to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences in Islamabad.
