Provincial Minister for Prisons Chaudhry Abdul Waheed Arain disguised himself as a local citizen hoping to meet acquaintances inside Camp Jail in Lahore, Express News reported on Friday.

Wardens and security officials asked for a total bribe amount of Rs1500; Rs700 when he tried to enter and the rest when he tried to leave.

All prison officials apologised when they finally recognised the minister but Arain went on to suspend the entire jail staff.

@Basha Ahmed: because in Islam, anyone taking or giving bribe is KHANZEER? in that case, one sees the HERDS of Khanzeers at all airports of Pakistan to start with.

Good job Sir! A large majority of Pakistanis consider PMLN as their saviours and you will deliver good governance InshaAllah. Other provincial governments too should follow this example.
