Lahore, June 26 (ANI): Sharing a surname with some famous personalities of the world would obviously make people proud, but in Pakistan, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani's name is being utilized by tricksters for fraudulent activities.
Pakistan police has registered a case against a man named, Tasawarul Hassan Gilani for swindling a person while pretending to be a close relative of the prime minister, The Daily Times reports.
Claiming to be the son-in-law of the prime minister, Gilani sold a car having fake documents to a person named Shahzada Ahsan.
Ahsan, who complained about the forgery to the police, said he never thought that he would be cheated by Gilani, as he pretended to be Yousuf Raza Gilani's close relative.
Ahsan said that surname 'Gilani' removed all doubts from his mind.
He added that he was shocked to the core, as the Excise Department confirmed that vehicle's documents which Gilani had given him were fake.
Ahsan claimed that the 'fake Gilani' decamped him after taking 0.6 million rupees for starting a business besides pocketing the car's price.
The swindler is still out of the police's clutches. (ANI)
