LAHORE – Special plane carrying Nawaz Sharif , Maryam Nawaz takes off from Lahore Airport for New Islamabad Airport.

The duo is likely to be shifted to Adiala Jail and Sihala Rest House via helicopters.

Earlier National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday arrested former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz minutes after they landed at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport.

The father-daughter duo had returned to Pakistan from London for the first time after being convicted in the Avenfield property case.

The sentences, delivered in absentia, against Nawaz Sharif and his daughter who is widely seen as his political heir, have dealt a blow to their Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party.

Nawaz and Maryam were served with a legal warrant as soon as they enter Pakistan s airspace.

Nawaz was sentenced to 11 years in prison by a corruption court over his family’s purchase of luxury apartments in London.
