Earlier on October 2, Nawaz Sharif appeared in NAB court during which Justice Mohammad Bashir heard the references pertaining to London flats, Nelson, Nescom, Hill Metal and Azizia Steel Mills.

The accountability court, which was hearing three corruption references against former Sharif and his family, also issued non-bailable arrest warrants against his children and son-in-law. But she quickly added that she was returning "to test the judicial system".

A five member bench of the apex court on July 8 had disqualified former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and directed NAB to file references against him and his family members within six weeks and directed the accountability court to decide the references within six months.

However, the NAB prosecutor objected to the plea and urged the court to issue warrants for Nawaz's appearance in court.

"It has been exposed now and the whole world knows that this is not accountability rather, it has turned into revenge now".

"However, we are going back and will appear before the court and get through the wheels of justice".

Pakistan's National Accountability Bureau, which is investigating the case, arrested Safdar from the Benazir International Airport here, Dawn reported. "We respect the rule of law and the Constitution", she told Geo News.

Commenting on Nawaz' recent re-election as head of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Maryam said, "It is surprising that those who have nothing to do with the PML-N are raising objections to Nawaz Sharif becoming the PML-N president".

"God willing, the 2018 elections will be held on time and a democratic government will complete its tenure and pass on the baton to the next", she added.

Captain Safdar said that he returned to Pakistan on the advice of his lawyers.

Nawaz, his daughter Maryam and her husband Safdar were asked to appear before a court here on Monday over graft charges.

According to details, Asif Kirmani, Pervez Rashid, Marriyum Aurangzeb and other Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders were present on the occasion while Nawaz Sharif will not attend the hearing due to absence of his sons Hassan and Hussain.
