Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz Friday said her father is suffering from a pain in his arm, which she said is most likely to be angina, while serving a seven-year sentence in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat jail. “Sharif’s cardiologists have been trying to get access to him all day but [the] permission [has] not [been] granted. He needs to be examined by the doctors who are privy to his complicated medical history,” she wrote on Twitter. Maryam, who had visited her father in the jail on Thursday, also re-tweeted a post by a PML-N worker who claimed that although Nawaz Sharif had been complaining about pain in his arm since morning, his personal doctor has not been allowed to examine him. “Dr Adnan [Sharif’s personal doctor] has urged [the] medical officer that Miansb is [a] heart patient and pain in arm is [a] very dangerous symptom, but he has been asked to visit on Monday,” he tweeted.
