There seems to be no end to difficulties of former Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who is serving a prison term in Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore on graft charges.

After the reports of infighting in his party Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the rejection of his bail plea on medical grounds, the embattled leader may be deprived of home-made food facility in jail if the reports circulating in media is to be believed.

A Pakistani TV channel Geo News has reported that the Punjab government has now decided to withdraw food-from-home facility from him.

The TV channel quoting sources has said that the jail authorities have decided not to allow him the facility of home food delivery.

If the jail administration withdraws the facility, Sharif would be eating the food prepared in jail.
