Pakistan’s Senator Kalsoom Parveen died on November 20 after contracting Covid-19.
Ms Parveen, who was elected senator in 2015 from Balochistan, had contracted the virus last month and was initially admitted to Polyclinic and later shifted to a private hospital in the capital. In a statement, Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani said she did not only serve the people in underdeveloped areas of Balochistan but also played an important role in Pakistani politics.

They said the deceased was a strong voice for the people of Balochistan.
