Maryam Nawaz allowed to stay with ailing father
ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan directed the Punjab government on Thursday to make arrangements for Maryam Nawaz to shift her to the hospital in order look after her ailing father.

Naeem ul Haque, a spokesperson to the prime minister, said that Khan telephoned Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, directing him to shift the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader to the Services Hospital where her father is being treated for acute ITP.

The Punjab government is in contact with the authorities of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to fulfil the legal requirements for this process.

Maryam Nawaz is in the judicial custody of the NAB in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case. She has been detained at Kot Lakhpat jail.

Following the permission, the daughter of the former premier will be able to take care of her father at the hospital.

Earlier, the prime minister Imran conveying his “sincere prayers” for the health of former Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif said he had directed all concerned to ensure the provision of the best possible health care and medical treatment to him.

“Political differences notwithstanding, my sincere prayers are with Nawaz Sharif for his health. I have directed all concerned to ensure the provision of the best possible health care and medical treatment to him,” the Prime Minister said in a tweet posted on his social media account.
