The cancer-stricken wife of Pakistan's jailed former Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, has died in London, her brother-in-law said on Tuesday.
After the Supreme Court disqualified Nawaz Sharif from his seat previous year, Kulsoom was elected to Lahore's NA-120 constituency in a bye-poll.
Up until her husband´s ousting a year ago, Kulsoom Sharif had never been a politician, but she memorably led protests after a 1999 military coup that ended a previous Sharif administration.
Kulsoom Nawaz is survived by her husband and four children, Hassan, Hussain, Maryam and Asma.
Three-time-premier Nawaz Sharif, who was removed from office in each of his elected terms, has maintained that his most recent ouster in July 2017 and subsequent conviction were part of a plot against him by the powerful military and the judiciary.
Nawaz Sharif and his daughter were arrested on July 14 in Lahore in connection with a corruption scandal related to offshore properties.
The Musharraf regime eventually allowed Nawaz and Kulsoom Sharif to leave the country, and they spent years in exile until returning in 2007 to contest new elections after Musharraf stepped down in the face of mass protests.
She was under treatment at London's Harley Street Clinic since June 2017, placed on life support last night after her health deteriorated. Her body will be brought back to Pakistan on the first available flight for burial.

Born in 1950 in Lahore to a Kashmiri family, Begum Kulsoom was the granddaughter of renowned wrestler Ghulam Muhammad Bakhsh, known locally as 'Gaama Pahelwan'.

"The Pakistan High Commission in the United Kingdom has been directed to provide all possible assistance to facilitate the heirs of Mrs. Kulsoom Nawaz", his office said in a statement. They prayed eternal peace for the departed soul and commiserated with the bereaved family.
