ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari has returned home after cutting his Dubai visit short, Geo News reported.

According to Presidency spokesman, Farhatullah Babar, President had reached Pakistan after finishing his private business in Duabi.

Earlier, President Asif Ali Zardari left for Dubai on a scheduled one-day trip on Thursday amid growing tension over the ‘memo’ seeking US help in warding off a probable coup.

Foreign media quoted Gulf-based sources as saying that Zardari would make the trip for a medical check-up. "This trip will be for a follow-up medical check-up and then he'll be returning right away," another source said.

However, reports were also doing rounds that President went to Dubai to attend a wedding.
