LONDON: Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has regained consciousness, her son Hussain Nawaz confirmed on Thursday.
“After exactly one-month, she [my mother] has opened her eyes. She looked around after opening her eyes,” Hussain Nawaz told reporters in London.
Kulsoom Nawaz had been unconscious and in critical condition after she suffered a cardiac arrest last month. She is being treated at the Harley Street Clinic in London.
In August 2017, Kulsoom Nawaz was diagnosed with lymphoma (throat) cancer and has undergone several chemotherapy sessions.
Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam Nawaz have been in London prior to Eid-ul-Fitr and are expected to return tomorrow. Nawaz and Maryam will be arrested upon arrival in Pakistan following their sentencing in the Avenfield Reference case.
