LAHORE: As former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani set off by train towards Multan, not only did the train make an unscheduled stop at the Lahore Cantt Station, but apparently also let him stay on board without a ticket, Express News reported on Sunday.
Gilani, who was on board the Allama Iqbal Express, was talking to the media at the Lahore Cantt Station when a journalist enquired whether he had bought a ticket or not.
Gilani, however, chose not to answer the question but soon after, authorities paid Rs25,000 in fares for two salons.
The former prime minister was accompanied by IG Railways Syed Ibn-e-Hasan, DC Railways Javed Noor and many security personnel.
