PML-N leaders reach Adiala Jail to meet Nawaz and Maryam
RAWALPINDI – Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders and family members of imprisoned former prime minister Nawaz Sharif started arriving at the Adiala Jail for meeting on Friday.

At least 47 persons have been allowed to Nawaz and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, who are serving their terms in the jail.

The visitors include Abbas Sharif, Haris Butt’s family, Pervaiz Rasheed, Daniyal Aziz, Musaddaq Malik, Zafarul Haq, Marriyum Aurangzeb, Khawaja Asif and others.

Jail authorities have allocated Thursday for visitors who want to meet Nawaz and Marya but the meetings could not take places due to Eid holidays. Sharif family and PML-N leaders, however, had requested the authorities to arrange the meeting on Friday.

Speaking to the media outside the jail, Asif said, "I have come to meet Nawaz today as we were not granted permission during the past two days."

Earlier on Wednesday, sources said PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and some family members met Nawaz and Maryam in Adiala jail on Ediul Azha.

Nawaz and Maryam were sentenced to jail for different periods of time by an accountability court after they found guilty in the Avenfield properties case.
