Lahore, July 13 : Airport authorities say a plane carrying disgraced former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz has landed at Allama Iqbal International Airport in the eastern city of Lahore.
Officials from Pakistan’s anti-graft body are present at the airport to arrest Sharif and his daughter who were convicted and sentenced in absentia to ten and seven years, respectively, in a corruption case.
Sharif and his daughter are expected to be transported to the garrison city of Rawalpindi, where both will serve their jail term if they don’t seek bail.
The pair arrived from London, where they were visiting Sharif’s ailing wife when a Pakistani court convicted them of corruption.
