Staff Report

Strict security measures have been taken in connection with the shifting of former and disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz to the Adiala Jail.
Intelligence agencies have sent some suspects to jail. During the search operations the barracks of male and female prisoners have also been searched.
Jail Superintendent has informed the law enforcement agencies about the facilities that will be provided to Nawaz and Maryam in the jail.
On the other hand, strict security measures had been taken, when the daughter of Maryam Nawaz Mehrun Nisa, and her husband arrived to meet Safdar.
The Son-in-law of Safdar had brought eatables and clothes along with him. The leader of PLM-N Hanif Abbasi also met Safdar.
Former premier Nawaz and his daughter Maryam will be directly moved to Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi following their expected arrival in Lahore on Friday.
The former premier and his daughter will be moved to Adiyala prison via helicopter.
DG NAB Lahore Shehzad Saleem requested the NAB chairman to provide a helicopter for transferring the two high-profile figures, who were recently sentenced to 11 and eight years respectively in prison in the Avenfield properties case.
Last week, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was sentenced to a total of 11 years in prison and fined a £8 million (Rs1.3 billion) in the Avenfield properties reference, while his daughter Maryam was sentenced to eight years with a £2 million fine (Rs335 million).
Additionally, Safdar has been given a one year sentence without any fine.
The NAB has shifted Safdar to the Adiala Jail, after he was earlier presented in an accountability court in Islamabad on Monday.
The son-in-law of the deposed prime minister was arrested by the anti-graft body on Sunday.
