Nawaz reportedly excused himself from meeting visitors who arrived at his residence in Raiwand to offer condolences and spent time in his room with close family members and friends.
The former premier's sons, Hassan and Hussain, will not travel to Pakistan for their mother's funeral. 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.
Hundreds of mourners attended the funeral of the former first lady Kulsoom Nawaz including former Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif, Hasan and Hussain Nawaz, former finance minister Ishaq Dar, former Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar, former federal minister Berjees Tahir, former AJK prime minister Chaudhary Abdul Majeed, PTI London President Barrister Waheed Miah and representatives of religious and political parties attended the funeral.More news: United States threatens ban to fight teenage vaping epidemic
When Shehbaz reached Adiala Jail to meet Nawaz after the demise of Begum Kulsoom, the latter initially refused to come out of jail on parole in protest against his conviction and detention. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Peoples Party's delegations will attend the funeral prayers, Geo News reported.
A provincial Home Department spokesperson later said that the parole of the trio was extended by three days. She would be buried Friday.
The home department said the period of parole has been extended until 12 am on Monday. Nawaz, their daughter Maryam and son-in-law Capt (retd) M Safdar, who are serving prison terms in connection with a corruption case, were granted parole to attend the funeral.More news: HRW accuses China of conducting 'human rights violations' against Muslims
