He was brought to cardiology ward of the hospital amid tight security and the ward was declared a sub-jail. Nawaz stayed at the hospital until his medical reports showed his recovery to health.
Nawaz and his daughter Maryam were jailed on July 13 after an accountability court sentenced them to 10 and seven years, respectively, over Avenfield properties in Britain which emerged in the wake of Panama Papers revelations.
The ousted prime minister was also slapped with a £8 million fine whereas Maryam was fined £2 million in the corruption reference.
