Going to prison for future generations, says Nawaz after reaching Abu Dhabi

"Goodbyes are hard, even for the grownups", she tweeted. The pair were taken into custody shortly after their arrival at the Lahore airport.

From Lahore, they are expected to be taken to Islamabad by helicopter and moved to Adiala jail.

Authorities have mobilised more than 10,000 police officers ahead of their arrival and plan to block roads with shipping containers to shut down the city of Lahore.

Underscoring the tensions gripping Pakistan in the run-up to the poll, a suicide bomber had killed more than 100 people at an election rally a few hours earlier, in the deadliest such attack in the country in more than three years.

Nawaz Sharif return latest updates: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif said that he is coming back for the future generations of Pakistan.

The verdict came at a time when Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif were in London to see Begum Kulsum Nawaz Sharif who has been undergoing treatment for cancer.

Both Nawaz and Maryam will be shifted to Sahala Resthouse. Police have virtually put Lahore on lockdown as scores of Sharif's supporters clashed with police in the evening.

Former Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif flew home Friday to start a 10-year prison sentence on a day when a bombing at an election rally killed at least 70 people, heightening security concerns for the country's already fraught national elections.

On July 6, Nawaz was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment and a fine of eight million pounds was slapped on him in the Avenfield Reference case, while Maryam was sentenced to seven years of jail and fined two million pounds, by the Accountability Court.

"Everyone is involved in this blatant rigging from the caretaker Punjab chief minister to the caretaker interior minister and police officials", the PML-N president asserted, as he warned the officials concerned of "fair judgement" if the PML-N is voted to power again. "The Election Commission of Pakistan must act and order release of our detained workers".

Pakistan's media regulator has ordered television channels to stop live telecast of briefings of political leaders containing "defamatory and derogatory content" ahead for former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's return to the country on Friday, NDTV reported.

After boarding the flight Friday, Sharif posted a video on social media urging supporters to show up in droves for the July 25 election, and thereby resist what he has called a conspiracy to oust his ruling party from power.
