Danyal Gilani, PRO in the PM's office, confirmed on Saturday that he was Headley's half-brother. Headley dumped his original name, Daood Gilani, to mask his antecedents as a drug smuggler and escape profiling as a Muslim.

The acknowledgement, reported by PTI from Islamabad, came in response to a report in TOI. However, Danyal distanced himself from Headley saying he had very "little contact" with Daood since 2002 when he began living in Islamabad after passing the civil service exam.
