Punjab govt extends parole of Nawaz, Maryam, Safdar by five days


The Punjab government on Wednesday extended parole of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter, Maryam, and son-in-law Captain (retd) Mohammad Safdar by five days, according to the Punjab Home Department.

The home department said the period of parole has been extended until 12 am on Monday.

Earlier, the former premier, his daughter, and son-in-law were released from Adiala Jail on parole, hours after Nawaz’s ailing wife Begum Kulsoom passed away at a hospital in London on Tuesday.
