Pakistan’s ailing former prime minister and chief of the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) Nawaz Sharif made a few strangely unscheduled hospital visits in London earlier this week after he reported of acute pain due to stones in his kidney, media reports said on Thursday.

The 70-year-old politician who has been staying in London since November 2019 on medical grounds, during his hospital visits underwent multiple tests and scans to determine a course of treatment, the Dawn reported.

“He is very unwell and has serious pain in his kidney owing to deteriorating kidney function. Doctors are conducting tests and scans to determine a course of action. He has developed kidney stones,” news agency PTI quoted Dr Adnan Khan, personal physician of the former Pakistan prime minister.

According to the Dawn report, Sharif, who in the past has undergone heart surgery, visited consultants on Harley Street on Tuesday and Wednesday and is going for more scans on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz announced on Twitter that her father was unable to participate in a meeting of the Pakistan Democratic Movement because of “severe kidney pain”. In the tweet, she said she would attend the meeting in her father’s place.

Nawaz Sharif along his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Muhammad Safdar were convicted in the Avenfield properties case on July 6, 2018. Sharif was served jail imprisonment of seven years in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case in December 2018.

However, he was granted bail in both cases and also allowed to go to London on medical grounds.
