According to some sources within the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), the leader of PML-N, Maryam Nawaz met her father, Nawaz Sharif at the Services Hospital in Lahore, on Wednesday night.
It happened after PML-N sent a request to the Home Department and to ask for special permission for Maryam to meet her father. The request letter said, “It is already in your knowledge that Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, former three-time prime minister of Pakistan is unwell and has been shifted to Services Hospital for treatment. His daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif is an undertrial prisoner at Kot Lakhpat Jail Lahore. She has not been able to inquire about the health of her father. It is requested that special permission be granted to (her) to visit her ailing father to inquire about his health.”
Earlier today, an accountability court in Lahore had turned down the request of Maryam asking for permission to visit Nawaz Sharif. While talking to a reporter she said, “I asked for permission from the judge to grant me an hour to meet Mian Sahib on my way back to jail but he didn’t give me the permission.”

Maryam asked to be given a time of one hour so that she could see her father. The request was made by her during the court proceedings in the Chaudhary Sugar Mills case.
The court asked the NAB investigator when a reference will be filed in the case during the court proceedings. He replied that he had entered the final stage of preparation and would submit it after approval from the NAB chairman.
Judge of the Accountability Court, Chaudhry Ameer Mohammad Khan extended the judicial remand period for Maryam and her cousin, Yousaf Abbas till October 25th.
The doctors at the Services Hospital told on Tuesday that the condition of Nawaz was critical despite the fact that they transfused three mega units of platelets within a few hours after he was admitted.
The medical tests of Nawaz Sharif which were held yesterday showed that his platelet count had reduced from 16,000 to 2,000 which is a very dangerously low amount. After the tests, one of the board members suggested going for an instant transfusion of platelets in order to save his life.
Nawaz Sharif was shifted to the Lahore Services Hospital by NAB on Monday after Dr. Adnan Khan, his personal doctor told that his condition was critical.
