ISLAMABAD, Oct 28 (APP): Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development (OP&HRD) Wednesday clarified that National Tourism Coordination Board, Chairman, Sayed Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari had travelled to Chitral in official capacity.

“But, he borne all of the expenses from his own pocket,” it said while rejecting a news item appearing on social media.
