Safdar, a former army captain and the husband of Maryam Nawaz, widely seen as Sharif's political heir, was taken into custody by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) when he landed at the worldwide airport in Rawalpindi early on Monday.

Arrest warrants for Safdar were issued by an accountability court after he and other members of the family failed to appear before it.

The Court provided the copies of the references to Maryam Nawaz, and ordered to release Captain (retd) Safdar on bail.

Nawaz, his daughter Maryam and her husband Safdar were asked to appear before a court here on Monday over graft charges.

Sharif and his two sons were absent during the hearing as they are in London to attend his wife Kulsoom who is battling throat cancer.

Reports said that the couple had arrived to appear before the accountability court.

The court rejected NAB's request to confiscate Mr Safdar's passport and to issue his judicial remand, however, the accused has been directed not to leave the country without court's permission.

Maryam Nawaz said she appeared before the court despite reservations, adding that 200 million people elected Nawaz Sharif as their PM and the court ousted him in a second.

Maryam had run a successful campaign for the PML-N while her mother received medical treatment in London, resulting in PML-N securing Nawaz's "home seat" in NA-120. Maryam was with him but she was not arrested. The court also made a decision to conduct separate trials of Husain and Hasan from Sharif and his daughter and son-in-law.
