The sources said the accountability court issued notices because Sharif and members of his family did not appear before the court.

M Zulqernain: Lahore: Pakistan's top anti-graft body on Friday froze the bank accounts and seized the properties of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members who are facing corruption and money laundering charges.

The references were filed in the backdrop of Supreme Court's July 28 decision in the Panama Papers case in which Nawaz Sharif was also disqualified for concealing his employment with Capital FZE, a firm owned by his younger son Hassan.

The former PM is now in London in connection with his wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz's treatment for throat cancer.

On the other hand, the Islamabad Accountability Court, hearing the Sharifs' corruption case, has summoned daughter Maryam and son-in-law retired captain Safdar to appear before it on September 26.

The much-awaited verdict in what came to be known as the Panama Papers case stunned the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, which put up a courageous front saying all was not over for Sharif and he would remain its leader. Last month, the Sharif family and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar had chosen not to appear before NAB in different cases.

After attending the 72nd annual session of the United Nations General Assembly, the premier arrived in London where he will meet Sharif and attend a high-level party meeting to discuss national issues and political situation.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif thanked everyone for the support and said that prayers are needed for her full recovery while Maryam Nawaz thanked Almighty Allah in her tweet.
