Plane carrying Kulsoom Nawaz’s casket leaves for Pakistan


LONDON  – Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight PK-758 carrying Kulsoom Nawaz’s casket has on Thursday left for Pakistan after a delay of nearly five hours.

The family of the deceased received a death certificate issued by London’s private hospital and the ‘out-of-England’ letters from the coroner’s court.

Earlier, large number of mourners attended Kulsoom Nawaz’s funeral prayers held in mosque located in Regent’s Park. Family members and prominent political figures including Hussain Nawaz, Hassan Nawaz, former Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif, former finance minister Ishaq Dar and Ch Nisar attended the last rituals of former first lady.

The legal complications have restrained Hussain Nawaz and Hassan Nawaz from attending Kulsoom’s funeral prayers in Lahore as both have been declared proclaimed absconders by an accountability court.
