Liquor found in Atiqa’s luggage

RAWALPINDI – The All Pakistan Muslim League of former president Pervez Musharraf had to face embarrassment when one of its central office-bearers, who is also a renowned TV artiste, was briefly detained on Saturday by Airport Security Force at Benazir Bhutto International Islamabad Airport for keeping two bottles of liquor.

Atiqa Odho was scheduled to travel to Karachi by PK-319. The ASF searched her luggage and found the intoxicant, which is forbidden under the law. The artiste-politician was, however, set free after a couple of hours when some unknown strings were pulled.

No action was taken against her. However, liquor bottles were seized.

While the APML leader was contacting the’ right’ people to get her out of this mess, the Karachi-bound flight left the airport. As a result, she went back to the federal capital, cancelling her travel plan.
