ISLAMABAD: Former incarcerated premier Nawaz Sharif has sought permission from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to submit additional reports about his health.

The court is set to resume hearing of his bail plea on medical grounds in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case on Wednesday.

A two-member bench comprising of Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kiyani will hear the bail plea

The application has sought a request from the court to allow the submission of his ‘verified’ medical report compiled by foreign doctors.

On the other hand, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has termed the bail plea “impermissible” for hearing, and subsequently requested the court to dismiss the application.

Earlier on June 17, the superintendent of the Kot Lakhpat Jail and a medical officer had submitted their reply in the IHC over health status of Mr Sharif, who has sought suspension of his sentence in the case while filing a second petition.
