Prime Ministers Son get a Traffic Ticket and pays it too !

ISLAMABAD: City traffic police late on Sunday caught Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani’s son for a violation and served him a ticket, which he received civilly and also paid the fine personally.

Sources told Dawn on Monday that Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Liaquat of the Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP), who was deployed at Radio Pakistan, spotted a car (LEC-411) being driven with high beam.

The ASI signaled the vehicle to stop and informed the driver that he had committed a violation by using high beam. He asked for documents to issue a fine ticket.

The violator introduced him as Moosa Gilani, a son of the premier, but the ITP official again sought the documents.

Mr Gilani handed over the car’s registration book to the police official, who issued him a ticket carrying a fine of Rs200.

Mr Gilani himself visited a National Bank’s branch on Monday and paid the fine to get the vehicle’s document back. He also visited the ITP Headquarters, met senior officers there and commended the ASI’s ‘honesty and zero tolerance.’
