On Thursday's hearing, Azam Nazir Tarar counsel for the petitioner apprised the bench that accountability court dismissed application of his client for framing a joint charge sheet in three references which was violation of fundamental right provided to Nawaz Sharif under Article, 4, 9, 10-A and 25 constitution of Pakistan.

Minister of State for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Marriyum Aurangzeb has said deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif was presenting himself before the law and urged all state institutions to operate within the ambit of the Constitution.

"Absolutely shameful how a discredited PM, facing a host of financial corruption charges, is given official protocol at tax payer expense", Imran Khan said on Twitter.

Minutes after landing, Sharif along with his motorcade left for Punjab House where he is meeting party leaders and holding consultation regarding his plan to appear in court tomorrow.

Mr. Sharif was disqualified in July this year by the Supreme Court, which found him guilty of not being honest and truthful as a parliamentarian.

On Oct 25, Sharif's representative Zafir Khan filed as many as three pleas, challenging the NAB court's indictment in the corruption references. She said that Nawaz Sharif had said he would himself set a tradition of accountability in the country and by appearing in the courts, he surely had set a unique example.

Sources in the party informed The Nation that former prime minister would hold meetings with senior party leaders as well as the leaders of other political parties to work out some joint strategy for his stated agenda of establishing civilian supremacy in the country.

Earlier today, Nawaz Sharif reached Islamabad airport from London after staying in London for less than a month with his ailing wife, Kulsoom Nawaz.

Citing the court order, it said in the letter that the "accused was overseas and reportedly, is arriving in Pakistan on 2nd November at Benazir Bhutto International Airport Islamabad".

"A premier is branded a "hijacker" in a matter of seconds", he complained.

Amidst the graft case, Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League party supported Sharif in order to remain strong against the opposition party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
