PIA flight carrying Nawaz Sharif's wife Kulsoom's body arrives in Lahore from London

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's wife Kulsoom Nawaz will be laid to rest here on Friday.

The funeral prayers will be offered at the Regent Park mosque on Thursday and her body will be flown to Lahore after completion of legal formalities.

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.

The body has been shifted to Jati Umra Lahore residence of the Sharif family for burial, Pakistan's Geo TV reported. They have also received the "out-of-England" letter from the coroner's court, paving the way for the departure of her body for Lahore on Thursday evening. Among the attendees were Hassan and Hussain Nawaz, Shehbaz Sharif, PML-N leaders Chaudhry Nisar and Muhammad Ishaq Dar.

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

The visitors condoled the death of Begum Kulsoom with Hamza Shehbaz Sharif and Salman Shehbaz at the open area and no one was allowed to meet Nawaz, Maryam and Safdar - who were being kept at a place in the farmhouse where mainly their relatives were allowed to meet them.

People continued to arrive at Jati Umra to express grief and offer sympathy to the Sharif family.
