The former premier was under treatment at the Services Hospital for last 16 days.

Nawaz was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday, however he refused to be moved to Raiwind at the eleventh hour because his daughter Maryam had not been released from the prison despite the submission of surety bonds and passport to the court.
