Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, who was part of the five-member Supreme Court bench that disqualified Nawaz Sharif last month, suffered a heart attack on Tuesday, Express News reported.
The senior judge was admitted to the Punjab Institute of Cardiology after he experienced chest pain.
The doctors there have confirmed that Justice Khosa indeed suffered a heart attack and he will undergo angioplasty.
They added that two valves of the judge’s heart were blocked, causing the heart attack.
The doctors will try to open the clogged arteries using angioplasty and then decide whether the judge needs to undergo a surgery or not.
Justice Khosa was part of the bench that declared in the April 20 verdict that Nawaz Sharif was not honest with the nation and the court.
Likewise, his “Godfather” remarks during the proceedings of the case are still quoted in the media.
