LAHORE: A special court for narcotics control on Saturday dismissed two pleas filed by Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah seeking video evidence of his possession of drugs and return of his vehicle seized at the time of his arrest.
Hearing the case, Judge Shakir Hussain also rejected a plea filed by the prosecution seeking daily hearing of the case. Rana Sanaullah’s lawyer Farhad Ali Shah argued that a large number of cases were pending in the courts, but the prosecution wanted to expedite the PML-N leader’s case only. Upon which, the prosecution said that since the suspect had alleged them delaying the case, therefore they wanted it to be heard on daily basis.
The court hearing has been adjourned till March 7. The special court also directed the authorities to produce Rana Sana before it on next hearing.
On Jan 14, the federal government had placed former Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah’s name on the Exit Control List (ECL). The federal cabinet had placed his name on the no-fly list through a circulation summary, after he was bailed in the narcotics case.
Responding to the news, Rana Sanaullah had said that it did not matter to him if his name was placed on the ECL as he did not want to go anywhere.
His name had been placed on the list for his alleged involvement in a case pertaining to possession of narcotics.
