LAHORE – Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has approved the five-day parole for PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif and leader of Opposition in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz so they can attend the funeral of Begum Shamim Akhtar.

Sharif's party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, had earlier sought two-week parole for the father-son duo on Monday.

A private media channel confirmed Thursday that a draft summary was prepared for their release on parole for five days. With the cabinet's approval, the 69-year-old and his 46-year-old son would be let out of jail on parole to attend the funeral of Nawaz Sharif's mother, a day before the body arrives in Pakistan.
