According to jail manual, they can be medically examined at the jail hospital.

Pakistan's third major political movement, the Pakistan Peoples Party, joined the criticism of the crackdown, with its prime ministerial candidate Bilawal Bhutto Zardari questioning why Sharif's supporters would be prevented from gathering.

A special plane later carried Sharif and Maryam to Islamabad.

But news of the PML-N convoy, first assembling at Lahore's historic Lohari Gate, and its march towards the airport, was limited at best till late evening.

Pakistan's National Accountability Court ordered their arrest for failing to explain how the family acquired London properties.

Meanwhile, Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam, who were in London to meet the former's ailing wife, Kulsoom, left for Pakistan today.

Sharif reportedly refused to sit in the vehicle of the Rangers to get to the airport terminal.

Upon their arrival at Lahore airport, Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) team confiscated their passports.

According to media reports, dozens of security officials entered the plane after it landed and asked other passengers to leave.

Maryam said the court verdict was not unexpected, while Nawaz earlier alleged a judicial witch-hunt against him and his party was being carried out by the Pakistani military while the country suffers from rising tension between the civil government and the army.

Nawaz Sharif was sentenced to 10 years in jail and Maryam 7 years jail term. Local media said they were then taken to Adiala jail in the nearby garrison town of Rawalpindi.

In order to "maintain law and order" in the city, 10,000 police officers will be deployed across Lahore on Friday, Dawn quoted Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Operations Shahzad Akbar, as saying.

Internet and mobile services have been cut off in most parts of Lahore and will be suspended until midnight.

Oxford-educated Khan spoke in an interview on Friday as his arch foe, ousted former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was due to return to the country and be arrested on a conviction that was handed down by an anti-graft court last week.

He said that no PML-N party worker with a clear conscience would go to the airport to receive Sharif.

The rally kicked off at the Lohari Gate in the afternoon and could manage to proceed a few kilometers as party workers struggled to remove cargo containers on their way.

On Friday, some of Sharif's supporters clashed with police in Lahore.

Shahbaz Sharif, the younger brother of Nawaz Sharif, who now heads the PML-N, was leading the procession to the airport.

In hopes of soothing voters' fears, the army announced that 370,000 troops would man election polls July 25 in hopes of preventing attacks and to protect against predictions of fraud.

Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz were convicted in Avenfield reference last Friday by the accountability court.

'What credibility will these elections have when the government is taking such a drastic action against our people and this crackdown is taking place all over the country?' he said in Abu Dhabi en route to Lahore.

Further, the former premier and his daughter, Maryam Nawaz, were taken into custody directly from the aircraft and boarded onto a flight to Islamabad shortly afterwards.

"The country is at a critical juncture right now", a grim looking Sharif said.
