"Since the NAB has not yet received a reply from the United Kingdom authorities, it has made a decision to pursue the matter in person", a source said, adding that the team would make sure its return before October 13 to submit a report to the accountability court in Islamabad in connection with the indictment of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and sons Hassan and Hussain.

The court adjourned the indictment of Sharif, his daughter and political heir Maryam Nawaz, and son-in-law Mohammad Safdar in multiple corruption cases until Oct.19.

The lawyers alleged that they were manhandled by the security forces outside the court and prevented them from entering the courtroom.

Maryam Nawaz, 43, along with her spouse, former army captain Muhammad Safdar, returned to the country late last night to appear in the Accountability Court.

As the court was about to begin the proceedings, lawyers started protesting in the court room of Judge Muhammad Bashir against security arrangements which had "restricted their movement in the court premises". They are of the view that whey lawyers are being stopped from entering the court despite the orders of the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

Safdar submitted in the petition that the accountability court is scheduled to indict him, his father-in-law Nawaz Sharif, and wife Maryam Nawaz on Oct 13 (Friday) in a graft reference pertaining to the Sharif family's London flats.

The court during the hearing on October 9 made a decision to separate the trial of Sharif's sons Hussain and Hassan from Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law.

The sons of former prime minister had failed to appear before the NAB court despite the issuance of non-bailable arrest warrants against them.

On Thursday, Maryam left Lahore for Islamabad on a special plane to appear before the trial court, along with her husband, who has recently come under fire from several quarters, including his own party, for demanding that the government ban the Ahmedi minority community from government and military service. The cases were filed after the July 28 verdict by the Supreme Court which disqualified Sharif.

Meanwhile, the accountability court has ordered inquiry of the incident on the application filed by Advocate Naeem Gujar.

The "Volume-10" of the Joint Investigation Team report is said to have dealt with the mutual legal business agreements between the Sharif family and different foreign governments.

Both Maryam and Safdar have been charged by the NAB in one of three corruption cases filed on September 8 against Sharif.
