Local leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) were leading a party rally on Liaquat Road when Safdar disembarked from a vehicle and joined them amid cheers of supporters.
PML-N leaders Senator Chaudhry Tanveer and Malik Shakeel Awan, among others, were leading the rally and brought Safdar into their fold.
Safdar said he is here to court arrest among his supporters. He added that the time has come to decide which the path the country has to tread.
A team of NAB officials, including police personnel, is present at Teeli Mohallah to arrest Safdar, according to sources.
Sources said the bureau plans to take Safdar to its office in Islamabad and later shift him to Adiala Jail, Rawalpindi after a medical check-up.
Moreover, NAB officials said Safdar is a convict and anyone assisting his evasion from the authorities can also be arrested.
Sources also said the Punjab Police high-ups have been instructed to assist the NAB team in their effort to nab Safdar
