The former first lady was diagnosed with lymphoma (throat) cancer in August 2017. She has undergone several sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
She was feeling better for the last month but was shifted to the hospital last night in an emergency and put on ventilator again, her son Hussain Nawaz said.
Family sources confirm that she will be laid to rest in Pakistan after family gets the death certificate from the hospital and then the coroner will issue ‘out of England’ order.
