Several people are expected to attend the funeral of the legendary comedian Umer Sharif, who left the world on 2nd October at the age of 66.

In this regard, the provincial Sindh government has made elaborate security arrangements for the funeral prayers and burial of Umer Sharif.

Sharif passed away on October 2, two days after he was hospitalised in Nuremberg with pneumonia. His body will be flown to Pakistan on October 4. He will be buried at Abdullah Shah Ghazi graveyard, as he wished.

Umer was en route to Washington in a German air ambulance that took off from Karachi on September 28. His stay in Germany, which was expected to be brief, was prolonged by the in-flight fever. He passed away after his condition worsened during dialysis.
