The Dubai Consulate has issued a No Objection Certificate in this regard. According to diplomatic sources, the dead body would be brought to Rawalpindi and it would be dispatched from Al Maktoum International Airport, Dubai and would reach Pakistan at 12 noon today.

According to sources, the Pakistani mission in UAE is in touch with late Musharraf’s family and the consulate will facilitate in whatever way it can.
