Rana Sana gets one-day exemption from appearance in drug case

Pakistan

Other suspects in the case were present at today's hearing.

LAHORE (Dunya News) - Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah’s indictment in a drugs case was delayed on Saturday as his plea for one-day exemption from appearing to hearing was approved by a special court for the control of narcotic substances in Lahore which has now summoned him on July 23.

Sanaullah was arrested in the case in July 2019 under the previous government by the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) which claimed to have recovered 15kg of heroin from his vehicle.

At the last hearing, the court had stated that charges against the interior minister would be framed on Saturday, June 25.

However, Sanauallah did not attend the hearing today, with his lawyers stating that the interior minister was busy with the annual budget session in the National Assembly.

The court, therefore, gave a day’s exemption to Sanaullah from attending the hearing and summoned him at the next one on July 23.

Other suspects in the case were present at today’s hearing.
