Former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani along with his son Ali Haider Gilani called on Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif on Monday at the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi.
According to an Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) press release, during his meeting the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Yousuf Raza Gilani thanked the army chief for his dedicated efforts that made recovery of his son possible.
Ali Haider Gilani was recovered in a security operation in Afghanistan on May 10 this year, three years after Al-Qaeda militants abducted him from his hometown of Multan in Punjab. He made a huge return to Pakistan on May 11.
Former premier’s son was rescued in Afghanistan three years after al-Qaeda militants abducted him from his hometown of Multan in Pakistan. He was campaigning for a provincial seat in parliamentary elections for the Pakistan People’s Party.
