Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s troubles are all set to increase with his predecessor being given the nudge by the establishment to return to the country.

Sources have told CNN-News18 that Sharif, in a subtle way, was told that he is needed in Pakistan and should come back. The development comes amid a power tussle between the army and Khan, with the former planning to pave the exit route for the ex-cricketer who has fallen out of favour.

Sharif, convicted in two corruption cases — Avenfield properties and Al-Azizia Steel Mills — was declared a proclaimed offender in December 2019 by the Islamabad High Court after he failed to appear before it with regard to other cases against him. An accountability court in Pakistan in 2018 had sentenced Sharif to 10 years in prison for owning assets beyond his known sources of income and one year for not cooperating with in the investigation of the Avenfield case.
