Medical report draws dismal picture of Nawaz Sharif's cancer-stricken wife
ISLAMABAD - The medical report of Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was submitted in the accountability court on Monday, suggesting that the cancer-suffering lady was still in a precarious condition.

According to the report, a few body parts of the former first lady were not functioning properly and her kidneys were not in operation.

Nawaz Sharif's wife was rushed to Harley Street Clinic in London hospital on June 13 after she vomited; she suffered a heart attack the following day, the report outlined.

While the report implied that Kulsoom's health saw slight improvement during last three days, doctors said she was still receiving therapy for the kidney.

The accountability court in Islamabad has approved a three-day exemption plea of the ex-PM and his daughter Maryam Nawaz to appear before the court in NAB references.

The duo had applied for a seven-day relief in a bid to tender to Lymphoma suffering Kulsoom Nawaz.

Ishaq Dar report

A new medical report of former finance minister Ishaq Dar was also submitted in the Supreme Court (SC) on Monday.

The report maintains that Dar’s condition has improved by 10-15 percent but the pain still exists in his arms.

The movement of his neck is quite limited and he suffers discomfort due to the ache, implied the medical report issued by a doctor in London.

Doctors have suggested additional eight weeks of physiotherapy of the former minister in the medical report.

The report dated June 8, 2018 has been prepared by neurosurgeon Richard Galan.

Surprisingly, Dar was spotted walking on London streets on Sunday. Journalists pitched several questions before him but he left quickly while ignoring them.

Ishaq Dar, the extended member of Sharif family, was declared an absconder by the accountability court in Islamabad when he failed to appear in a reference pertaining to assets beyond income.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader remained in London where he is reportedly undergoing a medical treatment for a heart disease, though the political opponents cast aspirations over the reason of his absence.
