Plane carrying body of Pakistani ex-PM Nawaz Sharif's wife reaches Lahore

Plane carrying body of Pakistani ex-PM Nawaz Sharif's wife reaches Lahore”

Heavy contingent of police has been deployed at the Jati Umra to provide security to the Sharif family.

Ousted as prime minister last year by the Supreme Court over some undeclared income, Nawaz Sharif was in London with Kulsoom this year when a separate anti-graft court handed him a 10-year jail term in absentia over the ownership of luxury flats in London in the 1990s.

Kulsoom had led the party as president after her husband, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was exiled.

The former three-time premier, who was accompanied by Sharif family members to pay respects to Begum Kulsoom at Sharif Medical City after her body was brought to Lahore, is now meeting guests in Jati Umra.

Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Capt (retd) M Safdar, now serving jail terms in the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi after being convicted by an accountability court in a corruption case in July, have been released on parole to attend Kulsoom Nawaz's funeral.

First Nimaze Janaza of the deceased will be held at 4:15 (PST) at the Central Mosque Regent Park London today while the second funeral prayer will be offered in Pakistan at 5pm at Sharif Medical City, Jatiumra.

Her body has been moved to a mortuary near the Regent Park mosque.

Sons of Hussain Nawaz have also come along with the body.

Along with him, Sharif's daughter, grand children and other immediate family members will land with the body of Kulsoom Nawaz.

Nawaz Sharif, who is out on bail, was accompanied by his family to pay respects to Begum Kulsoom at Sharif Medical City.

The funeral prayers in London were attended by her sons Hassan and Hussain, brother-in-law Shehbaz Sharif, former ministers Chaudhry Nisar and Ishaq Dar among others.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Javed Hashmi, Pervez Malik, Dr Asif Saeed Kirmani, Khurram Dastagir, Pervez Rashid, Rana Sanaullah Khan, Senator Ghous Muhammad Niazi, Abid Sher Ali, Khwaja Muhammad Asif, Ahsan Iqbal, Tehmina Daultana, lawyers and the party parliamentarians and workers reached Jattiumra to expressed their grief to the Sharif family. The family is now meeting people in Jati Umra, who have come to pay homage to Begum Kulsoom.
