ISLAMABAD: Begum Kulsoom, wife of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, passed away in London on Tuesday after protracted illness.

Her body will be brought to Lahore, where she will be buried, after completing the legal formalities.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shahbaz Sharif confirmed that Kulsoom expired in London.

Prime Minister Imran Khan issued a statement offering condolences, and said the government “as per law” would provide assistance to the Sharif family.

“She was a courageous woman of great dignity and confronted her disease with fortitude,” Imran said on Twitter.

Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Safdar will be granted parole for the funeral and burial of Kulsoom, local media reported.
