Lahore:  The ousted prime minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif has been shifted to Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore on Tuesday.

He was shifted to the Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore after the court accepted his request.

Sharif in his application to the court said he wanted to serve the sentence at Kot Lakhpat jail as his family members and his personal physicians live in Lahore.

The former premier was shifted to the jail a day after an anti-corruption court sentenced him to seven years imprisonment.

The former Pak premier is involved in a graft case linked to the high-profile Panama Papers scandal.

Soon after the pronouncement of the verdict, Sharif was arrested in the court and taken to Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi.
