Lahore: Famous lawyer and human rights activist Asma Jahangir's funeral will be held at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore at 3pm today.

On Sunday, Asma Jahangir suffered from cardiac arrest and was shifted to a hospital, where she breathed her last.

She became Pakistan's first woman to serve as the President of Supreme Court Bar Association of Pakistan. She co-chaired South Asia Forum for Human Rights and was the vice president of International Federation for Human Rights.

She was known for taking up court cases of victimised and marginalised sections of society, as well as speaking against human rights violations.

She was also an author and remained a staunch activist for democracy.

Earlier today, Asma's body was transported to her house in Gulberg from the hospital where it was placed in a morgue.
