No one is above law, constitution in ‘Naya Pakistan’: Firdous Awan
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that no one is above the law and constitution in Naya Pakistan.
In a statement, the special assistant said that Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah was arrested by Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) on receiving authentic information. “15 kilogram Heroin worth Rs 150 to 120 million was recovered from the vehicle of the PML-N leader,” she added.
Firdous Ashiq said that ANF was an independent institution and the government had nothing to do with the arrest of the former Punjab law minister. She further said that Rana Sanaullah’s arrest could not be termed as political victimization.
On the other hand, Rana Sanaullah will be presented before a court in Lahore today.
It is pertinent to mention here that the ANF Lahore arrested Rana Sanaullah near Sukheke after the discovery of a large stash of contraband in his vehicle.
The Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) will demand for a remand for the PML-N leader.
According to the reports, a security plan has been devised for Sanaullah’s court appearance, with more than 400 anti-riot force deployed around the city. The containers were placed on the routes towards court for avoiding any untoward situation.
After his arrest, he has been shifted to ANF Cantonment Office for interrogation. His medical examination was conducted in the ANF custody. ANF Commander Brig Khalid Mahmood supervised the arrest.
92 News had aired the news first of all, proving itself as informed and reliable.
Sources said that Rana Sanaullah had left Faisalabad for Lahore at 1pm and the contact with him was made last time near Sukheke. “A huge quantity of contrabands was also recovered from the vehicle of Rana Sanaullah. Its quantity could be up to 15kg,” they said.
They added that Rana Sanaullah faces a situation like Hanif Abbasi. However, no contact could be made with him as his cell number is off.
