Younis Khan has announced that he will donate the cash reward of Rs10 million that he received from Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to Edhi Foundation and two other organisations.
"I am thankful to the prime minister for the cash reward; I will donate it to Edhi Foundation, Indus Hospital and The Citizens Foundation," Khan said in a self-recorded video on Thursday.
He requested tax exemption on the donation "so that the amount could help as many people in need as possible".
