Maryam Nawaz, Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter, was arrested from the Kot Lakhpat jail today, in a money laundering case, while she was on her way back from visiting her father, who is lodged in the same prison.
According to an official press release issued by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), her cousin Yousuf Abbas has also been arrested in connection to the Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM) case.
According to the NAB officials, Maryam had excused herself from appearing before the accountability bureau on today and had gone to meet Sharif in the jail.
Her arrest came the day after she accused Prime Minister Imran Khan of “fall of Kashmir” and demanded registration of a treason case against him.
On July 31, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam was questioned by the anti-corruption agency officials in connection with the alleged money laundering and income beyond means charges against her and her family.
