Pakistan's deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif has returned to prison to serve his sentence in a corruption case. 

On 26th March, the Supreme Court suspended his seven-year sentence in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills corruption case and granted him bail for six weeks with a condition that he would not leave Pakistan.

Last month, the three-time prime minister sought the court's permission to go abroad for medical treatment. However, permission was not granted.

Nawaz Sharif left his Lahore residence yesterday for the Kot Lakhpat Jail, with a procession of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) workers. He has been serving a seven-year prison term at the jail since December, 2018 when an accountability court convicted him in one of the three corruption cases filed in the wake of the apex court's July, 2017 order in Panama Papers case.
