Bukhari’s response came following a video by some Pakistanis traveling to the UK posted on how they were being treated at the quarantine facility as there was no food for them and whatever was even served was stale to a point it caused many food-poisoning.
SAPM Bukhari has tagged in his tweet the official accounts of the UK government, that of British High Commissioner to Pakistan Christian Turner, and the official account of British High Commission in Pakistan, among others.
