Islamabad, April 19 (IANS) Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani Thursday directed his son Ali Musa Gilani to cut short his trip to South Africa after he was named an accused in a pharma scam in a petition filed in the Supreme Court.


The Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) named eight accused in its petition, including Musa Gilani, PM's principal secretary Khushnood Lashari and drug controller Sheikh Ansar, Geo News reported.


Gilani's son and a parliamentarian from Multan are currently on a private tour to South Africa. Gilani has directed his son to return to Pakistan to face charges of his alleged involvement in the illegal sale of Ephedrine drug, worth Rs.7 billion.


An editorial in the Dawn newspaper Wednesday said: "First it was the prime minister who summarily dismissed senior ANF officials who were investigating the case. This was done seemingly to thwart investigations by the force, which allegedly led to the PM's son."


It said: "Musa Gilani may have curried favour and may have been involved in wrongdoing. Only an impartial investigation can unearth the facts."
