The caretaker government wanted the medical board to cross-check the report of Major General (retd) Dr Azhar Mehmood Kiyani, head of Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology (RIC), on Nawaz’s health, sources said.
A team of health officials led by Dr Kiyani carried out the former premier’s medical check-up at Central Jail Rawalpindi.
According to report there is a risk of Nawaz’s kidneys failing due to a lack of water.
“Heat and lack of sleep have also affected the former premier’s health,” the report stated.
It added, “If conditions do not improve then Nawaz’s heart problem can worsen.”
The report also urged that the former premier be shifted to RIC.
