Popular British news outlet has claimed that Pakistani singer Hadiqa Kiani has been arrested on Heathrow airport for smuggling 2 kg of cocaine hidden in two bags of coffee.
However, Kiani rubbished all the reports and was offended over the fake claim.
Her response came immediately after Metro-UK.com, a British news website, quoted their local authorities about her arrest. The singer shunned the websites spreading news of her arrest and tweeted on Twitter to say that she is currently in Lahore.
