Nawaz Sharif's flight lands in Lahore; arrested from airport

Nations are built by raising the standards of vulnerable class

Earlier Maryam tweeted that her mother Begum Kulsoom Nawaz had opened her eyes for a few seconds on Thursday for the first time in weeks, she also requested her followers to pray for her mother's well-being. Flights that were to arrive at Islamabad airport this morning have been diverted to Lahore airport.

According to Geo.tv, NAB said it has arranged two helicopters expected to take the father and daughter duo to Adiala jail.

Authorities have mobilised more than 10,000 police officers ahead of their arrival and plan to block roads with shipping containers to shut down the city of Lahore. However, there are people in Pakistan who have done scam worth billions and are today fighting elections and giving sermons, he added.

In his correspondence Shahbaz Sharif condemned the countrywide crackdown on party workers while accusing the caretaker set-up of targeting his party.

Pakistan's third major political movement, the Pakistan Peoples Party, joined the criticism of the crackdown, with its prime ministerial candidate Bilawal Bhutto Zardari questioning why Sharif's supporters would be prevented from gathering.

Sharif's return from London, where his wife Kulsoom is critically ill and undergoing cancer treatment, comes at a time of dwindling fortunes for his party, which a year ago was considered a run-away favourite to retain power.

"I know that I have been given 10 years imprisonment and I will be taken straight to the prison but I want to tell the Pakistani nation that I am doing this for you", Khan said in his video.

Both Nawaz and Maryam will be shifted to Sahala Resthouse.

On Friday, some of Sharif's supporters clashed with police in Lahore. He was arrested by the NAB after he appeared at a PML-N rally in Rawalpindi.

The younger Sharif has called upon Mr. Askari for the immediate release of the detained workers.

Sharif and his daughter Maryam, who were handed down 10-year and seven-year sentences respectively last week, arrived in Abu Dhabi and will transfer onto Lahore.

His return is seen as a public show of acquiescence meant to win sympathy from voters in an election that analysts predict could either spell the downfall of one of Pakistan's most charismatic leaders, or lead to years of civil unrest and political instability. His brother Shehbaz became PML-N's president, but Sharif remains the power behind the throne.
