Parole of Nawaz Sharif, Maryam, son-in-law extended by 3 days

Nawaz Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law granted parole, reach Lahore to attend Kulsoom's funeral

The Home Department yesterday initially increased the parole limit to three days with effect from 12midnight Wednesday, but later extended it to five days (until Sunday midnight) to enable the incarcerated Sharifs to participate in the last rites of Begum Kulsoom.

The PML-N president had also shared that his brother and niece were adamant that they won't submit a request for parole to be able to attend Kulsoom Nawaz's funeral.

Her sons, Hassan and Hussain Nawaz will not be able to attend her funeral prayers in Lahore on account of corruption charges and arrest warrants levelled at them. 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. "In case of a delay in Begum Kulsoom's funeral, the parole will be further extended", the spokesperson added. The restricted area however has not been declared a sub-jail by the Home Department.
