Lahore -- At least 20 cases have been registered against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders and supporters for holding rallies to welcome ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif. According to details, FIRs against former Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, his son Hamza Shahbaz, Javed Hashmi, Raja Zafar-ul-Haq, Mushahid Hussain, Uzma Bukhari, Saira Afzal Tarar, Marriyum Aurangzeb and Kamran Michael were lodged at Lohari police station. Former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Talha Barki and Khawaja Salman Rafique were also booked for breaching code of conduct. On the other hand, cases against Rana Sanaullah, Mian Manan, Rana Afzal, Malik Nawaz and seven PML-N chairmen were also filed in Faisalabad. It is to be mentioned here that on Friday, PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz made a brief stay at the Abu Dhabi airport where their flight was delayed for nearly three hours. They landed at Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport at 9.10 pm IST via Etihad Airways flight EY243.

They were flown to Rawalpindi in a special aircraft and the aircraft will reach Islamabad's Benazir International Aiport in 40 minutes. The government has left no stone unturned to ensure the arrest goes as smoothly as possible. The Punjab government imposed Section 144 (unlawful assembly) in Lahore.
