ISLAMABAD: The special flight carrying Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif landed at Lahore as the premier returned after 48-day stay in the United Kingdom.
The flight arrived at Lahore airport’s Haj Terminal from where a helicopter is expected to take the premier to his residence in Raiwind.
Extra security arrangements have been made in and around the terminal as senior politicians are arriving to receive the premier who is returning to Pakistan after his 48-day stay in United Kingdom.
Nawaz is returning home after recovering from a heart surgery that he underwent in the United Kingdom in May.
The premier left his London residence for the airport to board the flight for Pakistan earlier in the day.
His daughter Maryam Nawaz had confirmed in a tweet on Friday that the prime minister will arrive in the country on Saturday evening. She also thanked well-wishers for their prayers for the PM’s recovery.
