Nawaz, Maryam arrested, taken to Islamabad

The ex Punjab CM says Imran Khan is in habit of telling lies day and night

Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz also tweeted about Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.

The party has also arranged a bulletproof vehicle to transport senior leaders to the Lahore airport. The two will be kept in Adiala jail in Rawalpindi for a day before being transferred to the Attock Fort prison, according to news agency ANI. However, there are people in Pakistan who have done scam worth billions and are today fighting elections and giving sermons, he added. According to sources, the Cabinet Division has allocated two helicopters - reserved for the prime minister - to the NAB to shift Sharif and his daughter to jail from the airport.

"The country is at a critical juncture right now", a grim-looking Sharif said.

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

Clashes broke out Friday evening at the main highway entry point to Lahore between pro-Sharif protesters and police who had been deployed in their thousands, a Reuters witness said.

The Avenfield reference is one of the three corruption references, filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on orders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP), which disqualified Nawaz Sharif, ousting him from premiership and finding him guilty in the Panama Paper case verdict.

Security has been beefed up at New Islamabad International Airport ahead of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's arrival.

A spokesman for Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party confirmed they were arrested soon afterwards.

Sharif returned from Britain after an anti-corruption court handed him a 10-year jail term and sentenced his daughter and political heir to seven years in prison over the purchase of luxury flats in London in the 1990s.

A police official who asked not to be identified said more than 100 PML-N workers had been detained.

"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.

Urging the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to take notice of the emerging situation, the PML-N president said, "By the time our workers are released polls will be over".

Pakistan's media regulator has ordered television channels to stop live telecast of briefings of political leaders containing "defamatory and derogatory content" ahead for former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's return to the country on Friday, NDTV reported.
