ISLAMABAD: Former special assistant to the prime minister on overseas Pakistanis Zulfi Bukhari on Thursday sent a £100 million (2.17 billion) defamation notice to PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Bukhari served the notice after the PPP chairman raised objections over reports of the former SAPM's alleged visit to Israel, Geo News reported. Criticising the government over the move, Bilawal, in a press conference on June 28, said that the government must reveal the details of Zulfi Bukhari's alleged visit to Israel.

"There are reports that an aeroplane flew to Israel from Pakistan, so the government must clarify the details of the route before the nation," said Bilawal. Bukhari, in a tweet, said that after consultations with his legal team, he decided to serve the PPP chairman the defamation notice for his recent "irresponsible remarks".
