Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter, Maryam Nawaz, were arrested Friday night upon their arrival in Lahore, a week after being sentenced to prison in the Avenfield Properties case.

The father-daughter duo arrived in the city from Abu Dhabi at 8:50PM after their flight was delayed for over two hours. They had left London a day earlier.

A National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team took Sharif and his daughter Maryam in custody from the aircraft, while officials of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) confiscated their passports.
