After their arrest at the airport in Lahore, Sharif and his daughter were immediately put on another plane and flown to the capital Islamabad, PML-N media coordinator Muhammad Mehdi said.

He also rejected increasing allegations by both the PML-N and the PPP that the country's "establishment" is pushing politically motivated corruption cases against their leaders.

According to sources in the know of developments, the plan regarding Sharif and daughter's stay at the jail was amended thrice after which it was chose to allot him a "B" class jail.

Will Nawaz Sharif's conviction herald Imran Khan's premier moment?

It was also chose to keep Maryam in Adiala jail " s women " s cell and not in Sihala rest house as suggested earlier.

No other party leader or worker visited Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz on their first day in jail, as the authorities had allocated Thursday for the visitors wanting to meet them. The prison cell of class A and B prisoners would be equipped with a cot, chair, teapot, lantern in case of no electricity, a shelf, and necessary washing and sanitary appliances.

Nawaz Sharif was allotted a "B" class category in the prison.

The father and daughter were then separated and taken from the Islamabad International Airport in two groups to the Central Jail in Adiala-Rawalpindi. The pair, who were sentenced in absentia on corruption charges last week, were taken to custody soon after their arrival.

"What is happening in this country today, what is happening in Lahore, raises questions regarding the elections".

In the July 6 judgement, Judge Bashir acquitted Sharif of the charge of corrupt practice, but convicted him, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Safdar for owning assets beyond means and awarded 10 years jail to Sharif, seven years to Maryam and one year to her husband Safdar.

Trump says May's Brexit plan kills hope of a USA trade deal
On Friday, protesters flew a blimp depicting the USA president as an orange, snarling baby just outside the British parliament. Trump told The Sun that such a deal "will probably kill" any prospect of a U.S. -U.K. free-trade agreement.

The NAB officials too said that the two have been provided B class facilities in the prison "on the basis of their social status and not on the grounds of the offence under which they were convicted".

Police have made arrangements to whisk them away by helicopter to Adiala Prison in Rawalpindi on their arrival.

Former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif along with his sons Hamza Shehbaz, Salman Shehbaz and mother Begum Shamim Sharif had reached Islamabad on chartered aircraft.

The arrest of ex-PM Nawaz and his daughter triggered violent clashes in parts of Pakistan.

PML-N leaders had called on supporters to turn out as a show of strength to mark Mr Sharif's return.

Supporters of Pakistani former prime minister Nawaz Sharif chant slogans in Lahore, Pakistan, July 13, 2018.

Nawaz Sharif consulted with his lawyers Khawaja Haris, Zafir Khan and Saad Hashmi in the presence of the jail superintendent.

Sharif's son-in-law is now serving a one-year prison sentence on the same charge, which stems from the purchase of luxury apartments in Britain that the court said were bought with illegally acquired money.

Earlier in April, Pakistan's Supreme Court disqualified Nawaz from contesting elections for the rest of his life because of his corruption cases as revealed in the Panama Papers.

In April the zenith court excluded Sharif for lifetime from the parliament and furthermore banned him from heading a political gathering.
