Punjab Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs Rai Taimoor Bhatti met Daniel Joseph in March. Joseph is a criminal wanted by the United States (US) Department of State with a reward being offered up to $500,000 for information about him.

Daniel is said to be the member of a criminal gang allegedly involved in heinous crimes around the world, including murder, trafficking in firearms and narcotics.

Taimoor Khan Bhatti shared a picture on his Twitter account last month in which Daniel Joseph can be seen sitting with him. He also said that he is looking forward to hosting Daniel Joseph in Lahore. In one of the pictures, he can be seen giving him some kind of shield.


“Met @probellum on aligning vision on boxing for Punjab & how to make this sport bigger for our youth. Looking forward to hosting Daniel in Lahore to discuss Pakistan’s first International fight with foreign world-class boxers InshAllah. Will share more info in the upcoming weeks,” tweeted Bhatti.
