Islamabad, June 29 (PTI): In order to thwart attempts by the Pakistani government to deport them, the wife and daughters of deposed premier Nawaz Sharif’s brother, Shahbaz, have gone underground even as his son filed a petition in the Lahore high court to prevent the move.
Police launched a frantic search for Shahbaz’s wife Nusrat and their daughters Rabia and Javeria as they could not find them in their houses yesterday, reports from Lahore said. Pakistan’s interior minister Faisel Saleh Hayat said yesterday the three would be sent back to Jeddah where the Sharifs have been exiled.
Hayat said the three were allowed to return for conducting the marriages of Rabia and Javeria but had over stayed without making any efforts to get them married. Shahbaz’s son Hamza filed a writ petition in the high court to prevent the deportation of his mother and sisters.
