LAHORE (92 News) – Former premier Nawaz Sharif will return to jail after the expiry of his bail period on Tuesday.

The prisoner No 4470 will be allotted B Class. As per directions of doctors, Nawaz Sharif will take meal from his house.

In a tweet, Maryam Nawaz said: “As the decision of going to jail for a father while holding the hand of his daughter was difficult, it is difficult as well for a daughter to take his beloved father to jail.”

SC rejects Nawaz Sharif’s review petition for bail extension

On May 3, the Supreme Court (SC) had rejected former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s review petition seeking extension in the bail.

A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and also comprising Justice Sajjad Ali Shah and Justice Yahya Afridi heard the case.

During the hearing, Sharif’s consul Khawaja Haris said his client can’t apply for bail before surrendering himself to the authorities. To reply, Justice Sajjad Ali said that whatever said prior to signing the order was just an observation.

The lawyer asked the court to extend the bail for eight more weeks as the only option available for his client is to be checked by the same doctors who were treating him earlier in London. The chief justice remarked that Nawaz’s health has deteriorated after going on bail.
