RAWALPINDI: Son of former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Hamid Gul, Abdullah Gul on Friday survived a murder attempt on Islamabad Expressway, ARY News reported.
According to details, Abdullah Gul said his jeep came under fire while he was heading towards Rawalpindi from the capital city.
He said two cars intercepted him and seven to eight bullets were fired at his vehicle.
“Such acts could not weaken our resolve. We will never spare the enemies. There’s no doubt that it is an act of enemies of Pakistan.
“I was attending an event in Islamabad, when I heard the news of attack on Maulana Sami-ul-Haq. I immediately left to visit him all alone and, while on the way through Islamabad Expressway, two vehicles tried to pull over mine. I timely observed weapons in their hands. Since, I was travelling on jeep so I turned away on the other side of the road and they could not chase me for they had old cars,” he said while telling detailed account of the event to the media.
