It has been seven days. Bilal and I were in London. He had to go back to Pakistan for some work.

There is no information about Bilal after that, he has been illegally and wrongfully held by some people. I request the ISI (Pakistan’s intelligence agency) to find out about this incident.” The Free Press Journal The Print

میرے شوہر بلال کو سادہ کپڑوں میں ملبوس افراد اغواہ کرکے لئے گئے ہیں۔ قانون نافذ کرنیوالے اداروں سے درخواست کرتی ہوں میرے شوہر کا پتہ کروائیں۔ بلال کا کسی سیاسی جماعت سے کوئی تعلق نہیں۔ pic.twitter.com/lYebJ2clx6

Shehbaz Sharif’s two-hour-long meeting with his new ‘girlfriend’ at a private hotel in London? First sat in the hotel lobby and drank tea for half an hour and then went to the room. Any shame?” The Print

I am back. I was treated with respect by the members of an investigation agency.
