Safdar, along with wife Maryam and father-in-law Nawaz Sharif, was given on Friday jail term in the Avenfield properties case. Nawaz and Maryam were sentenced to 11 and eight years in prison and slapped £8-million and £2-million fines, respectively. Capt (retd) Safdar also received a one-year prison sentence.
Muhammad Safdar earlier today appeared at a party rally in Rawalpindi.
Local leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) were leading a party rally on Liaquat Road when Safdar disembarked from a vehicle and joined him amid cheers of supporters.
PML-N leaders Senator Chaudhry Tanveer and Malik Shakeel Awan, among others, were leading the rally and brought Safdar into their fold.
Talking to Geo News, Safdar said he is here to court arrest among his supporters. He added that the time has come to decide which path the country has to tread.
Sources said the bureau plans to take Safdar to its office in Islamabad and later shift him to Adiala Jail, Rawalpindi after a medical check-up.
Moreover, NAB officials said Safdar is a convict and anyone assisting his evasion from the authorities can also be arrested.The Punjab Police high-ups had been instructed to assist the NAB team in their effort to nab Safdar, sources added.
Safdar’s audio message
Earlier today, Safdar had announced he will court arrest today.
The husband of Maryam Nawaz released an audio message stating, “I had earlier decided to court arrest in Tarnol, but as per the party’s decision I will now surrender from another city.”
Capt (retd) Safdar, however, did not reveal the name of the city.
“Surrendering is an honourable act,” he upheld.
Nawaz’s son-in-law in the audio message further expressed hope that “Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz will sweep the elections from Hazara”.
“I am an ordinary party worker,” he added.
Earlier, NAB Investigation Officer Imran Dogar was leading two teams — one in Mansehra and the other in Capt (retd) Safdar’s native village — which were conducting raids with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) police’s cooperation in a bid to arrest Nawaz’s son-in-law.
Earlier, as per information received by Geo News, Capt (retd) Safdar’s name was added to the “black list” of the Interior Ministry, barring him from exiting Pakistan through any airport or land or sea route.
Safdar’s last known location, since the verdict was announced on Friday, was his home constituency of Mansehra from where he intended to contest the July 25 election.
His mobile phone was also reportedly switched off.
After Friday’s verdict, the Election Commission of Pakistan issued directives to halt the printing of ballot papers for the NA-127 and NA-14 constituencies of Maryam and Safdar as they have been barred by the accountability court from contesting the July 25 polls.
