Nawaz Sharif, Maryam and Safdar granted parole for 12 hours

Nawaz Sharif, Maryam and Safdar granted parole for 12 hours

The wife of Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif died at a hospital in London Tuesday after months in critical condition, a spokeswoman said.

Though they have been granted only 12 hours, there is a possibility that the government could extend their parole. The security at the sub-jail is similar to that at Adiala Jail, where the Sharifs were incarcerated.

In another video, the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif can be seen trying to talk to Kulsoom Nawaz who was not able to talk back. Her condition deteriorated months ago.

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan had ordered to facilitate the Sharif family regarding bringing back the body of Kulsoom and matters related to their parole.

She was born in 1950 in Lahore to a Kashmiri family.

Nawaz, Maryam and Capt Safdar are now at their Jati Umra residence where they are meeting family members and party leaders. "A PIA flight carrying the body will arrive here on Friday morning and she is likely to be laid to rest the same day beside the grave of her father-in-law Mian Sharif at Jati Umra", they said.

While speaking to Geo News before she was flown off from Rawalpindi to Lahore's Jati Umra for her mother's funeral, the PML-N leader said: "Today was extremely hard after learning of my mother's death".

The former first lady was diagnosed with lymphoma (throat) cancer in August last and had been in London since, where she underwent multiple surgeries and at least five chemotherapy sessions. "Doctors tried their best but couldn't save her life", Marriyum Aurangzeb said.

She was placed on a ventilator in June following a cardiac arrest. "We are working on the arrangements for her funeral prayers and will inform the media soon", he reiterated.

Shortly after the announcement of her death, Pakistani TV stations showed Sharif's two sons and other relatives and supporters standing grimly outside the London hospital and receiving condolences.

The funeral prayers of ex-premier Nawaz Sharif's wife, Begum Kulsoom, will be offered at the Regent Park mosque on Thursday after Zuhr and her body will be flown to Lahore after completion of legal formalities.

After her death, Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (r) Safdar were freed on parole from the Adiala Jail on a request forwarded by Pakistan Muslim league Nawaz president, Shehbaz Sharif.

To a question whether her sons - Hasan and Hussain - would return to Lahore to attend her funeral prayer, she said: "No decision has been taken as yet".

Meanwhile, a good number of workers and leaders including Mr Sanaullah, Pervaiz Malik, Salman Rafique, Tahmina Daultana, Kiran Dar gathered at the party's Model Town secretariat to condole the death of Begum Kulsoom. "Both of them have already been declared proclaimed offenders, therefore, they will not be advised by their father to return", he said.
