ISLAMABAD: Ali Haider Gillani, the abducted son of former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gillani, appealed his family to pay ransom of Rs 2 billion to the kidnappers to ensure his release, ARY News reported.
He made this appeal in a video message received to Gillani family today (Friday). Ali Haider Gillani stated in a message that he was under custody of Mujahideen, instead of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan.
