A court in Pakistan on Monday rejected the bail application of deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. 

The Islamabad High Court refused to grant him relief on medical grounds in a corruption case related to Al-Azizia Steel Mills. The reasons will be given in a detailed judgment to be issued later.

Last month, Sharif filed the application through his counsel for bail on medical reasons as he reportedly developed heart-related medical complications. 

He is presently lodged in Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore to serve a seven-year sentence.

The Al-Azizia case was about setting up steel mills in Saudi Arabia with ill-gotten gains.
