Asif Zardari shifted to Rawalpindi hospital after drop in Sugar level and BP
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari shifted to Rawalpindi hospital after a drop in his sugar level and blood pressure (BP).
According to sources, Asif Ali Zardari, who remains under the custody of National Accountability Bureau (NAB), was shifted to Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology (RIC) this evening.
He was examined under the supervision of heart specialist Azhar Kayani. Zardari underwent angiography and other tests at the facility.
NAB officials clarified this was a routine check-up of the former president.
Zardari’s party however said it was not formally informed about deterioration in health condition of the co-chairman.
The NAB arrested Zardari in the fake bank accounts case on Monday after a bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) rejected a plea filed by the ex-president and his sister, Faryal Talpur, seeking an extension in their interim bail.
