Lahore, Sep 12: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif"s wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz might not come back to Pakistan as the exile accord applies to the whole Sharif family.

The undertaking under which the Sharifs were banished to Jeddah in December 2000 applied to the entire family, the Dawn quoted Attorney General Malik Mohammad Qayyum, as saying.

He, however, said that as no female member of the family had signed the undertaking, he was not in a position to say what would be the policy of the government.

Qayyum also recalled that the government had sent Kulsoom back to Saudi Arabia when she came to Pakistan a few years ago.

Kulsoom, who is in London, said that she would return to Pakistan to take part in the struggle against 'dictatorship".

She is scheduled to go to Jeddah for a few days before taking a flight for Lahore.
