LONDON: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s wife, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, passed away on Tuesday.
Begum Kulsoom was under treatment at London’s Harley Street Clinic since June 2014.
She was placed on life support earlier today as her health deteriorated last night.
Sources at the clinic said she had developed a lungs problem again.
The former premier’s wife, who has been undergoing cancer treatment at the clinic in London, was taken off ventilator last month.
“She had been responding well without the ventilator until last night,” the sources said.
The Sharif family has confirmed that Begum Kulsoom is critical and appealed for prayers.
The ex-prime minister’s wife was admitted to the hospital on June 14 after suffering a cardiac arrest.
Begum Kulsoom was diagnosed with lymphoma (throat) cancer in August 2017.
