Nawaz Sharif, daughter Maryam to be arrested, taken to Lahore on Friday

Sharif's son-in-law is now serving his one-year prison sentence on the same charge, which stems from the purchase of luxury apartments in Britain that the court said were bought with illegally gotten money.

Sharif has also said the military's intelligence wing, the Inter-Services Intelligence agency, is intimidating his party's candidates to switch loyalties, or to run as independents, ahead of the July 25 poll.

"We must change the country's future.This opportunity will not come again", he urged and asked his followers to support him at every step.

Meanwhile, the interior government and NAB said that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz would be arrested at the airport, said the interim government on Thursday.

Maryam was sentenced to seven years of jail and fined £2 million by the Accountability Court. "If they will be sent to jail, then I will also go with them", Sharif's mother said.

The order states that the PML-N leaders' speeches and actions may disturb law and order in the city.

Flights that were to arrive at Islamabad airport this morning have been diverted to Lahore airport.

Their return could shake up an election race marred by claims Pakistan's powerful military was skewing the contest in favour of ex-cricket hero Imran Khan.

"Nawaz really believes this is about democracy and his legacy", Musadik Malik, Sharif ally and former PML-N cabinet minister, told Reuters. The former prime minister and his daughter were in London, where Sharif's wife Begum Kulsoom is undergoing treatment for cancer.

To prevent PML-N workers staging a hero's welcome on the streets, authorities said they will arrest the father and daughter upon landing and transport them to the capital Islamabad by helicopter, local media reported. Sharif had stepped down as prime minister in July after the apex court's ruling.

More than 300 PML-N's workers have reportedly been rounded up from different parts of Lahore.

"But I'm returning to Pakistan leaving my sick wife behind", he vowed.

Further, the PML-N president said the verdict in the Avenfield reference was "unjust". "It is incorrect to say that only certain people are facing accountability".

"Those who think they can scare us.open your ears and hear this: we are winning this election", Shehbaz Sharif told reporters in Lahore on Thursday.
