The father-daughter duo were then separated and taken from the Islamabad International Airport in two convoys to the Central Jail in Adiala, Rawalpindi.
Maryam is being kept at the women’s cell in Adiala Jail, the sources said. Last night, police officials at Adiala Jail conducted the medical examination of Nawaz and Maryam and declared them fit.
