Rana Sanaullah 1

A Special (CNS) Court in Lahore on Monday extended judicial remand of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Punjab President and former Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah in a narcotics case till August 9.

Reportedly, Justice Khalid Basheer presided over the hearing of the case.

In this regard, the Anti Narcotics Force’s (ANF) Lahore team submitted a 60-page challan in the court, accusing six suspects, including Sanaullah.

Meanwhile, the court has sought details of challan in the next hearing.

Earlier today, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif reached the court to meet Sanaullah.

The ANF had arrested Rana Sanaullah on July 1 in a narcotics case and the next day a judicial magistrate sent him to jail on judicial remand.

The force had seized a large quantity of drugs from the possession of Sanaullah and lodged a case under section 9 (C) of Control of Narcotic Substances Act 1997, which carries death penalty or life imprisonment or a jail-term that may extend to 14 years along with a fine up to Rs1 million.

Allegedly, the former provincial law minister had been doing business with drug smugglers, who had links with banned outfits.
