LAHORE- The body of Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, arrived in Lahore from London in the early hours of Friday.

Begum Kulsoom died Tuesday in a London hospital after a long battle with cancer. She was 68.

Begum Kulsoom's funeral prayers will be held at the Sharif Medical City in Jati Umra neighbourhood at 5 p.M. (local time).

Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Capt (retd) M Safdar, currently serving jail terms in the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi, have been released on parole to attend the funeral.

Her other two sons- Hassan and Hussain Nawaz- will not attend the funeral as they have been declared absconders by a Pak court.
