Former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif has been advised to leave the country with his daughter Maryam Nawaz and to return at the right time, Dawn reported Friday.

According to reports, a property tycoon recently called on the jailed ex-premier and told him it was “in the best interests of everyone that he and his daughter left the country for now”.

The report also claimed that the said property tycoon was “the same gentleman who had earlier conveyed the message of an important person to Nawaz to step down as the premier”.


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Shehbaz Sharif also visited his elder brother on Thursday at the Kot Lakhpat Jail and their meeting has further fuelled rumours about the possibility of a deal that could lead to the Sharif family moving abroad for a few years.

However, it is also said that Nawaz is not ready to leave the country.

Meanwhile, PML-N Information Secretary Marriyum Aurangzeb has trashed reports and denied the claim that Nawaz met any property tycoon in jail.

“Mian Sahib had returned to Pakistan along with his daughter Maryam Nawaz clearly knowing that he was going to jail in the Al-Azizia Mills case, leaving behind his beloved wife on death bed for the rule of law,” reports quoted Marriyum as saying.
