Nawaz Sharif wants Kulsoom Nawaz’s pic in jail

اIslamabad: Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) leader Nawaz Sharif wants to have a picture of his beloved wife Kulsoom Nawaz – who died this year – on his side in the prison cell. Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz, who visited her father in the Kot Lakhpat jail, said Friday Nawaz Sharif was missing his wife. “I went to see MNS (Mian Nawaz Sharif) at Kot Lakhpat jail today. He was Masha’Allah (God has willed) in high spirits. I asked him if he needed anything from home & he said, ‘yes, Kalsoom’s photos’,” Maryam Nawaz tweeted. It has been three and a half months since the former first lady passed away after battling cancer for a year in a hospital in London. At the time, Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz were incarcerated at Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail in light of accountability court judgment convicting them in Avenfield corruption reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). They were later released on bail to attend the funeral at Jati Umra. The father-daughter duo was released after the Islamabad High Court (IHC) suspended the accountability court sentence after finding it lacked conviction. The relief was short-lived for Nawaz Sharif as a single-judge bench of an accountability court found him guilty of corruption in Al-Aziziza corruption reference and sentenced him to seven years imprisonment. Upon Nawaz Sharif’s request, Judge Arshad Malik allowed the PML-N supremo to complete the term at Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail. On Thursday, the former premier met his family members and PML-N leaders at Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat jail. The meeting was followed by an emotional tweet by daughter Maryam Nawaz, who said the deposed premier had asked for his late wife’s photographs when asked if he needed anything from home.
