Pak President Zardari, family flee to Dubai?



Zeenews Bureau

Islamabad: Amid a looming political crisis in Pakistan, President Asif Ali Zardari is reported to have left for Dubai on Tuesday.

The reports were however contradictory. While some reports said Zardari flew to Dubai from Karachi Airport along with his family, while others said only Zardari’s family left for Dubai and not the President himself.

The development came on a day when the Supreme Court ordered the arrest of Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf in a rental power scam and influential cleric Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri put the Pakistani government on notice and demanded the President and Prime Minister resign immediately.

Qadri made the demand while spearheading a million-man march at Islamabad’s Jinnah Avenue.
