Ousted Pakistan PM arrested on return, as bomber kills scores

Nawaz Sharif’s brother Shahbaz says it is painful to see PM Modi attending G20 summit

Maryam Nawaz tweeted a photo of her hugging her distraught daughter and son before leaving for her flight, with the caption: "Goodbyes are hard, even for the grown-ups". Sharif and his daughter Maryam are to be taken to Islamabad in a helicopter after their landing in Lahore. However, there are people in Pakistan who have done scam worth billions and are today fighting elections and giving sermons, he added.

The National Accountability Bureau has arranged two helicopters for shifting former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz to Islamabad after arresting them upon their entry into Pakistan, reported Geo News. Supporters of Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party say they will march to the airport there, where the former prime minister is due to land, in defiance of a ban on all public rallies.

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

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

"Over 100 police commandos will be deployed at the airport on Friday to avert any untoward incident", senior Lahore police officer Sardar Asif said.

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.

Granted, before marrying Prince Harry , Meghan was a successful actress and was no stranger to living in the public eye. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have certainly been making a splash during their royal visit to Dublin this week.

A Pakistani accountability court on Friday sentenced Sharif in absentia to 10 years in prison for corrupt practices linked to his family's purchase of upscale London flats. "The Election Commission of Pakistan must act and order release of our detained workers".

Their return could shake up an election race marred by accusations Pakistan's powerful military is working behind the scenes to skew the contest in favor of ex-cricket hero Imran Khan, who describes Sharif as a "criminal" who deserves no support.

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.

"We will not accept the results of the July 25 polls if pre-poll rigging is not stopped", said Nawaz Sharif's brother Shahbaz Sharif.

Further, the PML-N president said the verdict in the Avenfield reference was "unjust".
