Indian singer Sukhbir evade his arrest at Lahore airport

LAHORE: Indian Bhangra singer Sukhbir Singh dodged the airport officials to evade his arrest at the hands of custom authorities at the Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore, after $27,000 were recovered from his luggage on Sunday.
According to details, Sukhbir was set to board flight PK-203 to Dubai but was found to have been carrying $ 27,000, during the luggage screening, after which the custom authorities barred him from boarding the plane.
The Indian singer was being taken in for interrogation when he somehow managed to dodge the authorities and flee the airport premises, leaving behind his luggage and the recovered currency.
Sarwar Road police has taken up the investigation in this regard and are trying to locate and arrest the run-away singer.
Earlier this year, Ayyan Ali, one of the most recognisable faces on Pakistan’s modelling circuit, was arrested on March 14 from Islamabad’s international airport on charges of money laundering after being caught by customs officials with over half a million dollars in her luggage while boarding a flight to Dubai.
Although Ms Ali claimed that the money was legitimate proceeds from the sale of her property, the case took on a life of its own when alleged links with some prominent political personalities came to light.
