PAKISTAN’s OUSTED PM NAWAZ SHARIF VACATED OFFICIAL RESIDENCE AND SHIFTED TO HIS HILL RESORT OF MURREE WITH FAMILY MEMBERS :

Pakistan’s ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today vacated the official residence and shifted to the hill resort of Murree along with his family, days after he was disqualified by the Supreme Court. A five-member bench of the Supreme Court on Friday disqualified 67-year-old Sharif for dishonesty and ruled that corruption cases be filed against him and his children over the Panama Papers scandal, forcing the embattled leader out of office.  Sharif left the PM House with his wife Kulsum Nawaz, daughter Maryam Nawaz and his son-in-law Captain (Retd) Safdar and shifted to his private residence in the hill resort of Murree near Islamabad. He met the staff before leaving. The luggage of the former first family was already shifted, local media reports said. Ousted finance minister and Sharif confidante Ishaq Dar also left for Murree with the Sharif family. The PM House, nestled in the foothills of Margalla Hills overlooking the capital Islamabad, would be renovated for the new occupant, officials said. It is not known for how long Sharif would stay in Murree, a place he likes a lot and has been visiting frequently since he was the chief minister of Punjab.    Rediff.com ; 31st. July,17
