In a statement by his wife, the team of doctors in Karachi had declared him fit and granted permission to fly. However, his blood pressure on Monday had dropped and the doctors had advised against the air travel. He went through several tests before getting the green signal to fly.

For the unversed, a few weeks ago, Sharif was critically ill when he sent out a video message to PM Imran Khan seeking financial help for his medical treatment. As a result, the Federal and Sindh government stepped in and sanctioned Rs. 40 million for his treatment. It is also reported that actor Reema Khan’s husband Dr. Tariq Shahab will perform the surgery on Sharif.
Here’s wishing Sharif a speedy recovery.
