NAB well equipped to take care of Nawaz, Maryam

Sharif loyalists arrested as former PM returns to appeal conviction

Attendees chanted "Nawaz Sharif, We Love You!" as he concluded his speech.

Sharif is accompanied by his daughter Maryam Nawaz who is also convicted and sentenced to seven years of prison.

As per ANI, the PML (N) president said, "We thought Bangladesh is a baggage and it slipped off our hands".

Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz arrived in London prior to Eid-ul-Fitr and are now there due to Kulsoom Nawaz's prolonged illness.

Furthermore, the flights that were to arrive at Islamabad airport this morning have been diverted to Lahore airport. They will then be taken to Islamabad by helicopter and ferried to Adiala jail.

There would be an attempt to arrest him inside the airport for two reasons, to prevent him repeat his challenging narrative and to protect him against any untoward incident.Sources said after the arrest, the NAB team would get Nawaz and his daughter medically examined.

"Nawaz really believes this is about democracy and his legacy", Musadik Malik, Sharif ally and former PML-N cabinet minister, told Reuters.

Kulsoom Nawaz, whose health has been described as "highly critical" by doctors, has been undergoing treatment at the Harley Street Clinic in London.

Turns out, Maryam will be the first convicted woman prisoner to be taken into custody by Pakistan's anti-corruption body, the Islamabad-based National Accountability Bureau (NAB), reported The News International.

Thousands of supporters are expected to congregate at the Lahore airport for the dramatic home-coming for Nawaz Sharif, a three-time prime minister who wants to campaign for his party ahead of the July 25 general elections.

Recent opinion polls suggest PML-N has lost its lead nationally to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party of arch-rival Khan, whose anti-corruption message has resonated with many Pakistanis.

Heavy contingents of police and Rangers have been deployed on all the entry and exit points of Lahore. A second stint in power was ended by a military coup in 1999, prompting a period in jail for Sharif and years in exile in London. It plans to place 371,000 soldiers around polling stations so there can a "free and fair" elections, it added. "It is incorrect to say that only certain people are facing accountability". Look at Sri Lanka, Singapore, China all of them worked on our blueprint and today we've lagged behind.
