Shehryar Afridi says Rana Sanaullah granted bail, not acquitted
December 25, 2019
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – State Minister for Narcotics Control Shehryar Afridi said that PML-N leader was granted bail, but the impression was given perhaps he had been acquitted. Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, he said that he wants to tell the nation that he is still an accused. He said that the wrong impression of his word of footage was taken. “Had the video of the incident made they would have termed it ‘planted’,” he said. The minister said that 15kg of heroin was recovered from Rana Sanaullah and they had presented the proofs in court within 17 days. “It is the season of bails. Time will prove the truth.” He said that they (govt) are not the jury to punish anyone. “I have seen all things with my eyes and the prime minister blindly trusted me,” he said. Shehryar Afridi said that there will be no compromise at any stage. “We will go to the last extent for the case. The nabbed mafias are pressurizing us,” he said. He said that neither he nor Prime Minister Imran Khan had arrested PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah Shehryar Afridi said that they respected courts and believed in them. He said that the prime minister’s vision was to strengthen the institutions. "All the movements of Rana Sanaullah Sahib and his vehicle were observed at all levels. Video footage and other things are with us," the minister had said, while refusing to give further details saying they might harm investigation and key witnesses. He had said all the evidence would be presented before courts. On July 1, PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah was arrested by the ANF Lahore team while he was travelling from Faisalabad to Lahore near the Ravi Toll Plaza on Motorway. ANF claimed to have seized 15kg heroin from his vehicle. A special team of the force had also arrested five others, including the driver and security guards of the PML-N leader. The first information report (FIR) was lodged under Section 9(C) of the 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. The Lahore High Court granted Rana Sanaullah bail.
