Last rites of former first lady Kulsoom Nawaz are underway in Lahore with her funeral procession leaving the family residence for Sharif Medical Complex.

Renowned Islamic scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel led prayers at the sprawling healthcare facility.

Kulsoom breathed her last on Tuesday after a protracted battle with cancer. Brother-in-law Shehbaz Sharif, daughter Asma Nawaz, sons of Hussain Nawaz and other Sharif family members accompanied the body from London to Lahore on a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight.
