BRIEFLY Pakistan ex-PM Sharif’s daughter arrested amid crackdown on alleged graft
Islamabad: Pakistani anti-corruption officials arrested Opposition leader and daughter of former Pakistani Prime Minister Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Thursday, one of the most high-profile arrests in a crackdown on alleged graft.
Sharif is the latest member of her family to be targeted under the government of Mr Imran Khan, who swept to victory last year.
Her father, Nawaz Sharif, who served as PM three times, was sentenced in 2018 to seven years in jail for corruption. Her uncle, former Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif, has also faced investigation, along with other relatives.
