Kulsoom Nawaz readmitted to hospital as condition worsens


London  : Kulsoom Nawaz, the ailing wife of ousted Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was rushed to a London hospital again after her condition deteriorated, her daughter said today.

Kulsoom was diagnosed with early-stage lymphoma last month and has been in London since, where she has undergone three surgeries, reports PTI.

Her daughter, Maryam Nawaz, who is in London, tweeted, “Ami (mom) was taken & admitted to the hospital again late last night”. “Doctors are trying to stabilise her condition. Request for prayers,” she said. Kulsoom recently won Lahore’s NA-120 seat vacated by Nawaz Sharif after he was disqualified by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case. Kulsoom, who is in her mid-sixties, underwent a third surgery on September 21.
