The news was confirmed by Kulsoom's son and daughter.

. As per ANI, the PML (N) president said, "We thought Bangladesh is a baggage and it slipped off our hands". But I'm doing this for people of Pakistan, sacrificing for generations to come.

Some have even called it the "ugliest face of Pakistani establishment" as the administration in the country said it would arrest Mr Sharif and his daughter Maryam mid-air, as soon as their plane enters Pakistani territory.

The father-daughter duo are expected to reach Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport by Friday evening.

Ousted Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam arrived at the Abu Dhabi airport earlier Friday morning from London.

Maryam Nawaz also wrote on her Twitter account that her mother opened her eyes for a few seconds and we don't know either she recognized us or not but thanks to Almighty Allah that he has answered our prayers.

"Maryam and I are coming back to face prison and even if they send me to the gallows, we know that freedom can not be won without sacrifice". Still not conscious and on the ventilator.

Meanwhile in Pakistan, things don't look good for the beleaguered PML-N.

Recent opinion polls suggest PML-N has lost its lead nationally to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party of arch-rival Khan, whose anti-corruption message has resonated with many Pakistanis.

PML-N leaders claimed that around 300 workers were arrested from Rawalpindi on Tuesday, while several hundred others had been picked up from Lahore and other cities.

Once again, appealing that the "injustice" and arrests of workers be stopped, Shehbaz urged the caretaker government setup, "Please pause, reflect and change the course".

Speaking on the bad state of Pakistan's economy, he said our economy is on the verge of decline, the stock exchange is going down, our reserves can support only one month's import now, our investors went back to London and Dubai wondering what would happen on 25 July in Pakistan.

On July 6, Nawaz was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment and a fine of eight million pounds was slapped on him in the Avenfield Reference case, while Maryam was sentenced to seven years of jail and fined two million pounds, by the Accountability Court.
