Pakistani authorities on Wednesday temporarily released former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter from prison to attend funeral services for his wife, Kulsoom, who died of cancer the day before in London.

Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Capt (retired) M Safdar, now serving jail terms in the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi after being convicted by an accountability court in a corruption case in July, have been released on parole to attend Kulsoom's funeral.

Also, Iranian Consular General visited Jati Umra for offering condolences to Nawaz Sharif.

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

She was buried near the graves of her father-in-law and brother-in-law.

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.

Younger daughter of Begum Kulsoom and 10 other members of the family will come to Pakistan with the body.

Hundreds attended the funeral of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz. Her sons - Hassan and Hussain Nawaz - did not return to the country from London for the funeral. The body will be taken straightway to the Heathrow airport from the Park for bringing it back through PK-758.

People in large numbers visited Jati Umra to condole the lamented Sharif Family.

Both Sharifs said they had broken no law and there was no proof the residences were purchased with money from corruption.

A number of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders and members of Pakistani diaspora attended the funeral in the British capital.

Sharif's party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, which had been in power for five years, lost to the party of former cricket star Imran Khan.

The Sharif family had requested that a five-day parole be granted to the three. The family is now meeting people in Jati Umra, who have come to pay homage to Begum Kulsoom.
