Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has filed a petition in Islamabad High Court for suspension of his sentence in a corruption case.

The petition also seeks bail on medical grounds for the jailed PML-N leader. Sharif has been incarcerated in the Kot Lakhpat jail at Lahore after he was sentenced to seven years in jail by an accountability court in the Al-Azizia steel mills case last month.

An earlier petition for suspension of his sentence has been already filed in the High Court for which the court had set a hearing for the 18th of next month. Sharif's legal team wanted to persuade the court for early hearing.
Sharif has repeatedly complained of heart-related complications while in jail. A panel of doctors have already suggested to shift him to hospital.
PML-N has warned Prime Minister Imran Khan-led government of mass protests if anything happens to Sharif.
