London, Nov 19 : Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif reached London in an air ambulance for medical treatment.

Sharif, who reached London on Tuesday evening (local time), will consult doctors in the city, Geo News reported. Sharif arrived in London via Doha in Qatar in the air ambulance equipped with an intensive care unit (ICU) and an operation theatre with a team of doctors on board.

He was later taken to Avenfield House in London's Park Lane area.

The ailing leader was accompanied by his younger brother Shehbaz Sharif and personal physician Dr Adnan Khan.

Party workers greeted the former Pakistan prime minister upon his arrival at his Avenfield House residence. The former prime minister's departure to the UK was delayed by over a week after his ticket was cancelled as the authorities did not remove his name from the Exit Control List.

Mr Sharif secured an eight-week bail on medical grounds from the Islamabad High Court in the Al-Azizia Mills corruption case.

He was serving seven years imprisonment in connection with the case. He also obtained bail from the Lahore High Court in the money laundering case.

The former Pakistan premier was rushed to the hospital from Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore last month after his health deteriorated.

Sharif, who has been suffering from an immune system disorder, was recommended by doctors to go abroad as his condition continued to deteriorate despite treatment.(UNI)
