Pakistan: Nawaz Sharif
Islamabad, July 9: Amid tight security, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law Captain Muhammad Safdar Awan (retired) has been sent to Adiala jail in Pakistan's Rawalpindi city, media reports said.

He was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in connection with a real estate corruption case on Sunday.

 

A NAB team reached the Federal Judicial Complex where it presented the convict in the accountability court. He was then sent to the Adiala jail where he will be imprisoned for a year, the police confirmed to Geo News.

 

Safdar's medical examination has been reportedly conducted in the jail.

 

In a major blow to Nawaz Sharif ahead of the general elections, a Pakistani court on Friday handed over the former Prime Minister of the country 10 years jail term over his family’s purchase of upscale London flats.

 

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court declared the verdict after several delays.

 

Apart from Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif received a seven-year sentence.

 

The former PM's son-in-law Safdar Awan was given a one-year sentence by the court.

 

Apart from the jail term, Nawaz has been handed a fine of 8 million pounds.
