Grief-stricken Sharifs return to Adiala as parole period expires
LAHORE – Former premier Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Muhammad Safdar are being taken to Adiala jail as the five-day parole granted to them to attend Begum Kulsoom’s funeral ends today at 4 pm.
They have been serving sentences in Adiala jail since July in the Avenfield reference.
Nawaz, Maryam and Capt Safdar were released on parole after the former premier’s wife, Begum Kulsoom, passed away on Tuesday.
Nawaz, Maryam and Capt Safdar will be flown to Rawalpindi via a special flight from the Lahore airport.
Several PML-N leaders were present at Jati Umra when the three were taken for the airport.
Earlier, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif confirmed that Nawaz and his daughter Maryam had refused to submit a parole request for their release to attend Begum Kulsoom’s funeral.
