LONDON: Son of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Hussain Nawaz has expressed suspicion that his father might have been given poison.
“I had expressed this fear that one of the reason behind Thrombocytopenia, lack of platelets, is consumption of poison, therefore, this (matter) should be investigated,” Hussain Nawaz said while talking to media in London.
He said the most important thing for them was Nawaz’s health and treatment. “May Allah (SWT) give him long and healthy life,” he prayed.
To a query, he asked media that treatment of his father should be concealed, as they needed to focus on his proper treatment. “They had tried to make illness of my mother (a) political (issue), we now need to avoid passing any such statement,” he requested.
The son of Nawaz said a board consisting of highly-qualified doctors would treat his father. He requested from people to pray for recovery of his father’s health. He also reportedly said that the former PM should go to America for treatment, however it should be decided by doctors.
Nawaz Sharif will be treated at home instead of any hospital, local media quoted the Sharif family sources as saying on Nov 20. He will consult doctors in London on Wednesday (today) about his illness.
According to Geo TV, he would be treated at his son Hasan Nawaz’s house and a room had been reserved for this purpose. “The room has been furnished with the necessary arrangements as advised by doctors,” it said.
As per sources, two doctors would review the reports and conduct checkup of the 69-year-old patient before beginning any treatment.
In Pakistan, the ex-premier had been diagnosed with an immune system disorder and doctors had recommended him to get treatment from abroad as his health condition was not improving.
Sharif, along his younger brother and Pakistan Muslim League-N President Shahbaz Sharif, physician Adnan Khan and two servants, had arrived in London for medical assistance via an air ambulance on evening of Nov 19.
