Lucky day for Malik brothers


Express May 30, 2010

KARACHI: The tyre of a plane carrying Interior Minister Rehman Malik burst during landing at the Lahore airport on Sunday. Minister for Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti was also travelling with Malik.

A Civil Aviation Authority spokesman told APP all the people on board remained unhurt as the pilot controlled the plane. Malik has ordered an inquiry into the incident.

Meanwhile Minister Rehman Malik’s brother Khalid Malik escaped a kidnapping attempt on Friday night. Khalid was attacked when he left the Minister’s Enclave in Islamabad, to return home.  He was rescued by nearby police stationed on a picket but the gang, reportedly following him in a black land cruiser, escaped.

Khalid Malik later made a statement at the secretariat police station stating he was the target of an attempted kidnapping. Meanwhile police have registered an abduction case and an investigation is underway.

Maqsood Kayani | 11 years ago | Reply Pak Ministers fly when UK PM uses the bus !!! Interior Minister Mr Malik uses a special plane to flit about when UK Prime Minister David Cameron has resolved to travel by bus and give up his tax-payer funded official cars. Is this why Pakistan's "Ghareeb Awaam" is being buried under VAT and sundry taxes? MAK http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/8702883.stm No more ministerial cars? That's down to me While many people dream of a company car and driver, former MP Chris Mullin found it difficult to get rid of his ministerial vehicle. Here, he reflects on how his comic battle inspired David Cameron to cut government cars and encourage ministers onto public transport.
Sultan Ahmed | 11 years ago | Reply In view of the incident in lahore, in which more than 80 innocent people were killed by terrorists and large number of injured,many of them seriously, common man come the conclusion that insurgent in Punjab has been unleashed in their illegal and insurgent activities,no one is beyond their approach. As for as the news is concerned according to which an attempt was made to kidnap the brother of interior minister is highly considerable shouldn't disregard it. The whole scenario invite us all including religious clerics put it a side all differences and deal with spreading insurgency with strong head and unique unity. Let me say, we are on the brink, must stand with love and unity and tell the world that we can save our country from every crisis being created by the enemies.
