The 55-year-old husband of Sharif's daughter Maryam was shifted to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) from Adiala prison after his condition deteriorated, the channel reported.

His hospital room is likely to be declared sub-jail.

Safdar is serving a jail term of one year in Adiala jail after his conviction and sentencing by an accountability court over the Sharif family's ownership of four luxury flats in London.

He was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau on 8 July, following the court's verdict in the Avenfield properties corruption case in which Sharif and his daughter Maryam have also been sentenced.

Sharif was also previously shifted to PIMS after ill-health.
