Maryam was given 7 years imprisonment for abetment after she was found "instrumental in concealment of the properties of her father" and one year for non-cooperation with NAB.

Khan also used the venue to criticize former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison in absentia last week by an anti-graft tribunal over the purchase of luxury apartments in London.

She said that lawyers were exploring the case through all legal angles.

68-year-old Sharif is now in London, where his wife Kulasum Nawaz is undergoing treatment for throat cancer.

The former first family's son-in-law, retired Capt. Muhammad Safdar Awan, who was sentenced to a year in jail for abetting beside Sharif and Nawaz was arrested by NAB authorities Sunday evening from a rally meant to display PML-N's (Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz) power and showcase support of the masses in the garrison city of Rawalpindi.

Safdar had gone into hiding following his conviction on July 6.

NAB officials took Safdar into custody after he appeared at a party rally in Rawalpindi.

She said, "People fly out of the country to evade punishment but we are returning to face it."Nawaz Sharif has set a new benchmark by offering his arrest", she said emphasising that their sacrifices will not go in vain as they will benefit the future generations".

According to the report, Pakistan's National Accountability Bureau (NAB) teams were heading to the venue to arrest Safdar.

Three cases were filed against Sharif and his family in September a year ago following his disqualification by the Supreme Court on July 28, 2017 in the Panama Papers case.

Former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif said on Sunday his party was being bombarded with false allegations.

Sharif had denounced the court proceedings against him as politically motivated and a judicial witch-hunt, often suggesting the military was to blame. But the NAB has said the family has been unable to explain how it paid for them.
