Nawaz Sharif has been shifted back to Lahore's Kok Lakhpat prison after spending six days at a hospital.
PML-N workers crowded Services Hospital early in the morning.
The interior ministry decided to move the three-time premier back to jail after consulting with the hospital’s doctors who said, in light of his medical reports, it is safe to transfer him back to the jail.
The former PM’s daughter, Maryam Nawaz, arrived at the hospital along with his mother. Nawaz Sharif's mother prayed for both her sons. Maryam waved to the party workers, who chanted slogans and asked her about her father's health.
