Earlier, deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz were scheduled to land in Islamabad from London on the coming Friday.

The National Accountability Bureau has also chose to transfer Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz through helicopter to Adiala Jail.

After the Supreme Court announced the verdict in Avenfield case Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz made a decision to return to Pakistan from London on July 13th.

The NAB has already declared that Mr Sharif and Maryam will be arrested upon their arrival at any airport of the country.

Meanwhile, the NAB has chose to request the caretaker government to provide a helicopter to it so that it can shift Sharif and Maryam to Islamabad after their arrival at the Lahore airport on July 14.

The move came days after the accountability court in Islamabad convicted Mr Sharif and Maryam in the Avenfield properties corruption case and sentenced them to 10 and seven years jail respectively.

"Let me make it clear that the law enforcement agencies will arrest Nawaz and Maryam at the airport to implement the court's order", he said. Maryam was given 7 years imprisonment for abetment after she was found "instrumental in concealment of the properties of her father" and one year for non-cooperation with NAB. Both were also ordered to pay hefty fines, while retired captain Safdar who is now under arrest, was sentenced to one year imprisonment.

As some of them gained access to the apartment, one protester threw a shopping cart at Aijaz Gul, a member of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) United Kingdom unit.

Sharif along with Maryam had gone to London last month to see his ailing wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.
