She was arrested in a money-laundering case while she was visiting her father in prison

Maryam Nawaz, Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter, was arrested here on Thursday in a money laundering case while she was visiting her jailed father, an official said.

On July 31, the 45-year-old Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Ms. Nawaz was questioned by the anti-corruption agency officials in connection with the alleged money laundering and income beyond means charges against her and her family.

“We have arrested Maryam Nawaz in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM) case as she was facing money laundering and income beyond means charges,” a NAB official told PTI.

According to the NAB officials, Ms. Nawaz had excused herself from appearing before the accountability bureau on Thursday and had gone to meet Sharif in the jail. She is now being taken to the NAB headquarters.
