Islamabad: 

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam, who were sentenced for long jail terms in a graft case, returned to Pakistan today. Nawaz Sharif and his political heir Maryam are likely to be arrested upon their arrival in Lahore. Massive arrangements were made for their arrival, with more than 10,000 police personnel deployed. Many members of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) were detained on Friday. Nawaz Sharif is returning from London via Abu Dhabi, a week after a court gave him a 10-year-jail term over the purchase of flats in London. His daughter was also handed a seven-year jail term. Pakistan will go for elections on July 25.
