Court again issues non-bailable arrest warrant of Rana Sana.
RAWALPINDI (Dunya News) - A court in Rawalpindi has once again issued the non-bailable arrest warrant of Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and rejected the plea of declaring the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) senior leader an absconder.
Senior Civil Judge Ghulam Akbar heard the case.
During today’s hearing, the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) court directed the team of anti-graft watchdog to continue the efforts for the minister’s arrest and present him before the court.
Musaddiq Abbasi, the advisor to Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervez Elahi on anti-corruption, said that Rana Sanaullah has been found guilty in the corruption case against him.
Speaking during his media talk at Punjab’s Directorate-General Public Relations, Abbasi said that the interior minister was accused of taking bribes in the form of plots and he was summoned by ACE in October.
According to the advisor, Sanaullah did not show up despite being summoned, which is why his team has the “right to arrest the criminal in any position”.
The advisor stressed that the crime should be considered, no matter who commits it.
“This is not a political case, Sanaullah’s crime has been proven,” Abbasi remarked, adding that the PML-N minister registered the plots in the case for Rs900,000.
“The housing society was inaugurated in 2017, while it received permission in 2018. Sanaullah was given two plots in the society as a bribe,” Abbasi revealed, adding that the FIR against the interior minister was registered in 2019, while he submitted his letter of acknowledgement in 2022.
“The letter of acknowledgement stated that what was written in 2018’s registry was incorrect. Rana Sanaullah wrote his property has been frozen by the Anti-Narcotics Force,” he shared, further revealing that the interior minister mentioned plans of construction on the property.
