'Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif suffered heart attack in Services Hospital Lahore doctors saying he survived this heart attack but is feeling weak,' Mir said in a tweet.
The Geo News reported that the former Prime Minister's health had deteriorated since he was rushed to Services Hospital earlier this week with critically low platelet count in his blood. The Pakistan based media outlet said after transfusion, his platelet count returned to normal. However, it dropped again later in the day.
The Lahore High Court had on Friday granted bail to Sharif on medical grounds, in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case. According to the order, he will have to submit two surety bonds worth PKR 10 million for release in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
