The premier took to social media and said that political differences aside, his sincerest prayers are with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday granted bail to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President and daughter of deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, who was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau on Aug.8 in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday suffered an angina attack while undergoing treatment at a Lahore hospital.
"The family of the former prime minister formally approached the interior ministry asking the government to allow Sharif to travel abroad for medical treatment," a Sharif aide told AFP on condition of anonymity.
Sharif is already serving a seven-year imprisonment in Al Azizia Mills corruption case.
As the court sent the suspects to jail on judicial remand, Maryam's lawyer requested that she be sent to Kot Lakhpat Jail Lahore instead of Camp Jail Lahore. Pervez said that there were no arrangements for female prisoners in Camp Jail.
Outside the courtroom, a clash took place between police and PML-N workers including women. The activists pelted stones on policemen. One cop was injured. PML-N member of the Punjab Assembly Uzma Bokhari fell unconscious because of the fracas.
NAB's lawyer said that the investigations with Maryam had not yet been completed and requested an extension in remand for that purpose. In response, Maryam's lawyer Amjad Pervez said that the investigation had been carried out in all cases and the trial had been completed.
The permission was given for four weeks but the period can be extended for treatment if the doctors advised it.
As the picture went viral on social media, it sparked a debate about his health with his detractors asking why he does not return to Pakistan if he is well and roaming on London streets, while his supporters expressed joy at seeing their leader in good health and spirits.
