Rana Sanaullah being kept in lonely detention
The PML-N president claimed that PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah is being kept in lonely detention. “There is no bed, mattress, ‘charpoy’ or chair in his cell, he has no option but to sleep on the floor,” he added.
Shehbaz said that only Sanaullah’s wife, daughter, and son-in-law are allowed to meet him and no one else. “This treatment is not meted to even the enemies,” he said.
