Lahore Customs back Shoaib Akhtar

Seems like the heat is on the Nation for creating ‘a story out of nothing’ regarding Shoaib Akhtar carrying empty syringes in his luggage over to India.

Lahore Customs have now stated that there were no such incidents related to Shoaib Akhtar reported and the claim by the Pakistan daily is ‘simply ridiculous

Shahid Rahim Shaikh, the chief customs officer at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport siad:

Medical syringes are not even on the list of prohibitory items. Few medicines are on the prohibitory list but our officers would not allow any passenger — even if he’s a celebrity — to travel with these items.

Has the Nation gone mad?

Has their plot to defame Shoaib more simply failed?

or have they been out spoken irregardless of the validity of the issue at hand?

    even if he was taking the syringes with him, it is not illegal and hence not news worthy. next thing you know, they would be reporting how many times shoaub akhtar sneezes and and the number of visits to the loo of Mr Zardari in a day.

    Hail independent media

    Another cheap attempt by our media to defame fellow Pakistanis. Whats the matter with them. Don’t they get their hands on REAL NEWS any more now?
