Junaid Jamshed’s funeral prayers were offered at Noor Khan Airbase on Wednesday evening.
The singer-turned-religious scholar was travelling from Chitral to Islamabad in flight PK-661 when the aircraft crashed near Abbottabad, killing all 48 people on board on December 7.
Earlier, the televangelist’s brother Humayun Jamshed and mentor Maulana Tariq Jameel received the body from the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Islamabad. The body was shifted to the airbase from where it will be ferried to Karachi.
