LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz said on Thursday that she met her father, Nawaz Sharif, in prison today and the former premier was in "high spirits" there.
"I went to see Mian Nawaz Sharif at Kot Lakhpat jail today. He was Masha’Allah in high spirits," the former first daughter said in her tweet.
The former premier however asked for his wife's photos, she said.
."I asked him if he needed anything from home and he said, 'Yes, Kalsoom's photos'," Maryam added.
The former premier has been imprisoned in Lahore's Kot Lakhpat jail after an accountability court handed him a seven-year jail term in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills reference on Monday.
Earlier in the day, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders and his relatives met Nawaz at the prison. Maryam and Nawaz's nephew Hamza Shehbaz were among those who visited him at the jail.
PML-N leaders Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, Ahsan Iqbal and Rana Tanvir also visited the prison to meet the party supremo.
