Huma Akram, wife of former Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram, died at the Apollo Hospital here on Sunday morning after battling for life for the past five days.

According to hospital officials, Huma breathed her last around 9.45 a.m.

Huma was suffering from sepsis (an inflammation of several tissues, including blood leading to kidney failure) and was admitted to Apollo Hospital on Tuesday after developing complications mid-air while on her way to Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore from Pakistan.

She was accompanied by Wasim Akram.

At Apollo Hospital, she was in the intensive care unit (ICU) since then and died on Sunday morning without regaining consciousness.

Arrangements are being made to take her body back to Pakistan, the sources said.
