Court rejects Rana Sana’s plea to have home-cooked food in jail


LAHORE: A sessions court on Monday rejected incarcerated Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah Khan’s request to have home-cooked food delivered to him in jail.

Judge Qaiser Nazir Butt directed the former minister to approach the jail superintendent, which he said, was the relevant authority for the request.

Earlier, the court had reserved its verdict on the petition on July 13.

In a report submitted to the court, jail officials stated that Sanaullah was being “given food according to his health”.

“Daily medical check-ups of the PML-N leader were also being conducted,” the report said, adding that he was in “good health”.

The Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) arrested Rana Sanaullah from the Sukheki area of the Islamabad-Lahore motorway on July 15 for possessing a “large quantity of drugs in his car”.

According to a statement released by ANF, drugs were recovered from the former law minister’s car.
