Pakistan’s former military dictator General (retd) Pervez Musharraf was admitted to a hospital in Dubai after he developed “heart-and blood pressure-related” complications, according to reports.
The 76-year-old former president, who is living in Dubai in self-exile, was admitted to the Dubai American Hospital on a stretcher, citing “emergency treatment requirement” which was later confirmed by sources in his All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) party, reported.
“He has some serious health issues and lately had been complaining of some pain in the chest, and anxiety,” said the party’s spokesman.
“The doctors visited him at his place of stay and recommended immediate admission to avoid any further complications. The former president has undergone a few tests which will help determine the state of his health,” he said.
