Gilani orders probe into CWG flagbearer row     (PTI) Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani today ordered an inquiry into the embarrassing scuffle that saw a top sports official snatch the national flag from a sportsperson designated as the flag-bearer during the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Delhi. Gilani has taken "serious notice of the unpleasant incident" involving the Pakistani contingent at the Games yesterday, said a statement issued by his office. Gilani has asked Sports Minister Ijaz Jakhrani to "inquire into the incident and submit a report to him urgently". He said action will "be taken against any official (or) individual found responsible for the unpleasant incident". Members of the Pakistani weightlifting team threatened to pull out of the Games after a verbal showdown between weightlifter Shujauddin Malik and the leader of the contingent, Muhammad Ali Shah, over carrying the Pakistani flag at the opening ceremony.
