    Not a new story.

    A hectic and a very cautious follow-up of the story will expose many others.

    haha, thank God they have some standard in life, smuggling chars or some third grade narcotics like a desi koopi would have been such an embarrassment. For a change, they are at par with celebrities and sportsmen gone wild!!!Recommend

    Reminds me of the Air Canada air hostess who ws recently arrested in the UK for smuggling drugs along with her boyfriend. She was able to do it a few times before she was caught. It was only when the drug dealer was caught that they traced it back to her. She was a Canadian of Indian origin but as a air hostess, she would pass by the express lane in the customs carrying the drugs.Recommend

    This surely brings a bad name for the airline as well as the country.
    But hold your guns here folks.
    Not all in this society are Saints and not all in PIA are Drug Pushers.
    PIA is a pride of the nation and still is better than any other State controlled Department or Institution.
    People serve this organization for their life times, and get their Provident funds and pensions without any bribes.
    I am not sure about the state of affairs of Military Accounts but Can any other state organ match this with PIA.Recommend
