Banned outfit claims it abducted Gilani's son
Three months after former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani's son went missing from Pakistan's Punjab province, a proscribed militant group has claimed responsibility for Ali Haider Gilani's abduction, the Geo News reported Tuesday.
Ail Haider Gilani was kidnapped May 2 during an election campaign in Multan city.
Abu Yazeed, a spokesperson for the outfit calling itself Al-Mansooreen Brigade, said Ali Haider Gilani was in their custody and safe.
The group would soon release a video of Ali Haider Gillani shortly after Eid and apprise about their demands, he added.
