The 72-year-old was immediately admitted to the Pakistan Navy Ship Shifa or PNS Shifa, which is a technologically advanced naval medical treatment facility.

His personal physicians have also been called to the hospital, The News International reported, citing sources.

Another report said Musharraf was sitting with family at his home when he fainted. He was taken to the hospital amid tight security.

However, the spokesman All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) has described Musharraf's condition as normal and that is no serious problem with his health.

He said he was admitted to the hospital for getting some medical tests done.
