PML-N Supremo and former three-time Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who was also arrested for his role in the same case was admitted to Services Hospital after his platelet levels went low. The doctors, on Tuesday, termed Nawaz's condition as 'serious' despite the transfusion of three mega units of platelets.

The platelet count of the former premier, the souorces said, "dropped from 16,000 to a critical level of 2,000" when he was brought to hospital late on Monday night, leading the medical board members to go for "immediate transfusion of the platelets to save his life", a board members told reporters.

The NAB shifted Nawaz Sharif late on Monday night after Dr. Adnan Khan, the personal physician of Nawaz Sharif, expressed serious concerns over deteriorating health of Nawaz Sharif and suggested that he must be shifted immediately to hospital for medical treatment. The NAB, in a statement, said that Nawaz Sharif's condition was under control and said that the media should not create hype about his health conditions.

"Nawaz Sharif was shifted to hospital for improvement of his platelets levels and for his complete medical check up," said the NAB's press release. "He was okay as his condition was under control," it concluded.

Last week, the cell phone of Maryam Nawaz reportedly was recovered from her custody at NAB's detention center and was said by the NAB officials that she was in contact with various persons including her father Nawaz Sharif in Kot Lakhpat jail.
