Doctor not allowed to go with Nawaz Sharif

Doctor not allowed to go with Nawaz Sharif

Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz also tweeted about Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.

Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz were sentenced to prison in a corruption case on July 6 along with Maryam Nawaz's husband Captain Safdar.

A special helicopter is on standby at New Islamabad Airport. Local media said they were then taken to Adiala jail in the nearby garrison town of Rawalpindi.

Underscoring the tensions gripping Pakistan in the run-up to the poll, a suicide bomber had killed more than 100 people at an election rally a few hours earlier, in the deadliest such attack in the country in more than three years.

PML-N members have said the crackdown on workers who handle street level organizing will make it harder for them to stage rallies and protests on Sharif's return, when he will challenge the verdict and sentence against him.

Both Nawaz and Maryam will be shifted to Sahala Resthouse.

Shehbaz Sharif and other senior leaders of the PML-N were visibly angry over the police crackdown on their party workers during a press conference held in Lahore on Thursday afternoon. Police have virtually put Lahore on lockdown as scores of Sharif's supporters clashed with police in the evening.

"But I want the Pakistani nation to know that I am doing this for you", Sharif said in a video.

Sharif returned from Britain after an anti-corruption court handed him a 10-year jail term and sentenced his daughter and political heir to seven years in prison for failing to prove that money used to buy luxury flats in London in the 1990s was not ill-gotten.

Urging the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to take notice of the emerging situation, the PML-N president said, "By the time our workers are released polls will be over".

Speaking on the bad state of Pakistan's economy, he said our economy is on the verge of decline, the stock exchange is going down, our reserves can support only one month's import now, our investors went back to London and Dubai wondering what would happen on 25 July in Pakistan.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has already announced that the father-daughter duo will be arrested as soon as their aircraft lands in Lahore and will be sent to Islamabad on a helicopter.

Sharif's return comes at a time of dwindling fortunes for his party, which one year ago was considered a run-away favourite to retain power.
