Imran Khan addresses a public meeting in Bisham on Tuesday. — Dawn

The order, seen as an effort to ensure that Nawaz Sharif wasn't able to turn public opinion in his favour ahead of the July 25 general election, said "malicious and indecent content" was being aired live by television channels and sought only telecast of edited footage.

Nawaz Sharif on Friday was sentenced to a total of 11 years in prison and slapped a £8 million fine (Rs1.3 billion) in the Avenfield properties reference while Maryam was sentenced to eight years with a £2 million fine (Rs335 million).

In view of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz's return, Punjab caretaker government on Thursday took various measures to avert any untoward incident, which include blocking of various main intersections as well as routes leading to the Allama Iqbal International Airport and the Lahore Ring Road.

The Sharif family is now facing two more corruption cases in the accountability court - Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investments - in which they are accused of money laundering, tax evasion and hiding offshore assets. "Is there any Pakistani whose three generations had to face such sort of accountability?"
