Former PM Nawaz Sharif and his daughter, Maryam Nawaz, will return to Pakistan at 6:15pm on Friday.

According to reports, Pakistan's Punjab government has ordered to shut mobile networks in Lahore from 3 pm to 12 midnight today.

Supporters of Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party say they will march to the airport there, where the former prime minister is due to land, in defiance of a ban on all public rallies.

Begum Kalsoom Nawaz wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif regains conscious after month's long coma confirmed her son Hussain here in London on Thursday.

Sharif and daughter Maryam landed at UAE's Abu Dhabi International Airport on Friday morning. As per ANI, the PML (N) president said, "We thought Bangladesh is a baggage and it slipped off our hands".

"Despite seeing the bars of prison in front of my eyes, I am going to Pakistan", Sharif told Pakistani journalists this week in London, where he vowed to re-assert "civilian supremacy".

Elahi said Nawaz has not learnt any lesson from his past mistakes, even after becoming the prime minister for the third time he has rendered no service to the people, pursued policies contrary to the interests of the country and the nation.

Shehbaz Sharif and other senior leaders of the PML-N were visibly angry over the police crackdown on their party workers during a press conference held in Lahore on Thursday afternoon.

Before leaving for Pakistan from London, Maryam, said: "It is the most hard decision of our lives because my mother is on the ventilator and we don't know what happens next, their is no pain like that of leaving your mother behind in such situation but there's a national duty and we must make this important journey". The military denied the accusations saying their assistance in carrying out the elections was requested by Pakistan's Election Commission.

Accountability judge Mohammad Bashir sentenced Mr Sharif to 10 years and Ms Maryam to seven years' rigorous imprisonment and imposed fines on them for not justifying possession of Avenfield apartments. The army will deploy 350,000 security personnel to polling stations throughout the country on election day.

After the Supreme Court ousted Sharif last July, the courts barred him from heading the PML-N party he founded.

The kind of reception Sharif receives on the streets of Lahore will be viewed carefully in Pakistan, where political popularity is often measured by the size of rallies that politicians can attract.
