ISLAMABAD: A Pakistani anti-graft court on Thursday indicted ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter for allegations linked to ownership of posh London flats.

A Reuters witness in court said Sharif, his daughter Maryam, as well as her husband Muhammad Safdar, had all been indicted.

They all pleaded not guilty. Maryam and Safdar were present in court, but Sharif sent a representative while he tends to his ailing wife in Britain.

Sharif was disqualified by the Supreme Court in July for not declaring a source of income that he disputes receiving. Pakistan's top court also ordered a wide-ranging investigation by the National Accountability Bureau and trial of Sharif family members.
