Nawaz Sharif might have been given poison in custody, alleges son


Pakistan’s former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s condition deteriorated because he might have been given ”poison” in the custody of the anti-graft body, his son Hussain Nawaz alleged on Tuesday.

The three-time former prime minister and supreme leader of the PML-N was shifted to the Services Hospital Lahore late on Monday night after his condition deteriorated.

Nawaz Sharif, 69, is serving a 7-year prison term since December 24, 2018, when the accountability court convicted him in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case – one of the three corruption cases filed in following the Supreme Court’s 2017 order in the Panama Papers scandal.
