Sana’s remand extended till Nov 16


An anti-narcotics court on Saturday extended Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Punjab President Rana Sanaullah’s judicial remand till November 16 in a case pertaining to heroin possession.

The case was heard by judge Khalid Bashir in Lahore.

During the hearing, Rana Sanaullah’s counsels requested the court take action over their client’s plea to hand over the seized car.

The call data record (CDR) of the investigation officer was also submitted to the court.

The PML-N leader’s wife talked to media persons inside the court premises and reiterated support for Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazal (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman’s Azadi March while terming Imran Khan the “selected prime minister”.

Earlier, the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) had moved the Lahore High Court (LHC) against the trial court’s decision of not hearing a heroin smuggling case against Rana Sanaullah on a daily basis.

The petition was filed by the ANF legal director maintaining that a drug trafficking case was lodged against the PML-N leader on July 1 and the challan was timely submitted.

The ANF took the stance that the trial court, contrary to facts, rejected the plea seeking a hearing on a daily basis.

The ANF requested the Lahore High Court to nullify the trial court’s decision and allow daily hearings of the case.
