Nawaz Sharif offered Fateha at the graves of his father and brother at Sharif medical city.

Shedding light on Kulsoom's last election in Lahore, Butt revealed that she was the first woman in the country's political history who was elected by the people despite the fact that she was in London battling for her life.

Ousted as prime minister last year by the Supreme Court over some undeclared income, Nawaz Sharif was in London with Kulsoom this year when a separate anti-graft court handed him a 10-year jail term in absentia over the ownership of luxury flats in London in the 1990s.

Sharif is unable to meet visitors arriving at Jati Umra to extend condolences as his health deteriorated on Wednesday, family sources said.

Nawaz Sharif, who is out on bail, was accompanied by his family to pay respects to Begum Kulsoom at Sharif Medical City.

Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was laid to rest on Friday as thousands of people, top politicians and PML-N supporters attended her funeral prayers in Lahore.

Famed Islamic scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel will lead the former first lady's funeral prayers as special security measures will be in place to ensure that her rituals pass off without any untoward incident.

Along with him, Sharif's daughter, grand children and other immediate family members will land with the body of Kulsoom Nawaz.

Nawaz Sharif and other Sharif family members excluding 68-year-old Kulsoom's two sons Hassan and Hussain Nawaz attended the prayers.

Kulsoom was diagnosed with lymphoma past year, barely a month after Nawaz was removed from office by the Supreme Court, which ordered him to face trial in an anti-corruption court.

On Thursday, hundreds of people attended the funeral prayers of Kulsoom at London's Regent Park mosque.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's Punjab home department has issued a notification announcing an extension in the parole already awarded to Nawaz Sharif for additional five days - September 12 (4pm) to September 17 (4pm). Among the attendees were Hassan and Hussain Nawaz, Shehbaz Sharif, PML-N leaders Chaudhry Nisar and Muhammad Ishaq Dar.
