Nawaz, Maryam , Capt (R) Safdar Released On Parole

The Punjab government has extended former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter, Maryam, and son-in-law Captain (Retd) Safdar's parole by three days.

The three were released from Adiala Jail on parole hours after Nawaz's ailing wife, Begum Kulsoom, passed away at a hospital in London on Tuedsay.

Nawaz, Maryam and Safdar were released on a 12-hour parole to attend begum Kulsoom's Funeral.

The Sharif family had requested that a five-day parole be granted to the three, who are currently serving sentences at Adiala Jail.

Nawaz, Maryam and Safdar were escorted by police from Adiala Jail to the Nur Khan Airbase from where they were brought to Lahore via special flight at 2:30am early this morning.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif accompanied the three on the flight to Lahore.
