IAF chopper to fly Gilani to Mohali

The News International qouted sources as saying that Gilani will go to Chandigarh in a special plane and then the IAF chopper will ferry him to Mohali where explosive cricketing action will be witnessed by him and his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh.

Gilani will return to Islamabad the same night. The media report said a delegation of about 50 people will accompany the prime minister. Some federal ministers and members of the parliament are expected to be a part of the prime minister's entourage.

Sources said that the protocol division of the Foreign Office has begun arrangements for the visit on an emergency basis.

Gilani may proceed to London on a private visit immediately on his return from India Wednesday night, as his son is sick and admitted to a hospital there, media reports said.
