LAHORE: The personal doctor of former prime Minister Nawaz Shairf on Friday claimed that jail authorities had not provided Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif better jail facilities.

In a statement made to the press, Dr Adnan Khan expressed his outrage that despite court orders, jail authorities had failed to provide her with better jail conditions.

According to Khan, he met with Maryam Nawaz in Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore and was appalled to see Nawaz Sharif's daughter incarcerated in a small cell alone.

The doctor said that the jail cell even lacked basic facilities and was infested with bed bugs and mosquitoes. She is also not allowed to get home-made food in her cell.

Dr Khan noted that as per the court orders, the PML-N leader was entitled to better-class jail facilities. He urged the authorities to provide these to his client on an immediate basis.

Last month, an accountability court in Lahore sent Maryam Nawaz and her cousin Yousaf Abbas to jail on judicial remand in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
