A Pakistani commission investigating the US raid that killed Osama bin Laden has allowed his widows and daughters to leave the country, a media report said.
The commission, headed by justice (retired) Javed Iqbal, said that it had finished recording their statements and they were no longer required.
The compound in Abbottabad where Osama and his family members were living will be handed over to the local authorities, the Geo News on Thursday said quoting a notification from the commission.
On Tuesday, the commission held an "exhaustive interview" with Osama's three widows and daughters. Officials, however, refused to divulge further details.
Osama bin Laden was killed in a daring raid on his hideout in Pakistan's Abbottabad city by US special forces on May 2.
Following the raid, the authorities seized the building and arrested his wives and daughters who were living with him there, about 60 km from Islamabad.
