LAHORE: Federal Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has applied for a permanent attendance pardon in a drug case.
A drug case against Rana Sanaullah has been heard in the Lahore Anti-Narcotics Court in which the Home Minister appeared before the court.
During the hearing, the prosecutor argued that possession of drugs is a crime, and if found, it is a crime, while drug trafficking is also a crime against a government official.
The prosecutor said that the challan has been submitted after which the accused should be charged. We have 15 witnesses who confirm the allegation. In our case, there is also a chemical examination report so our evidence cannot be ignored.
The prosecutor argued that while the forensic and documentary evidence against the accused was consistent with the chemical analysis report, not all the evidence at the criminal level could be ignored.
On this occasion, Rana Sanaullah’s lawyer took a stand that his client should be given a permanent exemption from attendance as he could not appear on every date due to his busy schedule.
Rana Sanaullah also filed a petition for permanent attendance in the case on which the court issued notice to the public prosecutor.
