Jailed Villingili MP Saud Hussain’s mother died in Indhira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) on Sunday morning.
Nasira Ahmed died due to heart failure while being treated prior to a liver transplant.
The family said that she died while preparing to leave abroad for further treatment, which was delayed due to the arrest of MP Saud.
The police service has granted him permission to attend the funeral prayers.
Saud is currently serving 15-days in jail for entering the Parliament building after it was announced that he had lost his seat.
After the arrest, the State laid terrorism-related charges against him for allegedly threatening High Court Judge Sujau Usman.
