LAHORE: Lahore High court has fixed the plea seeking suspension of sentence of PML-N former MNA Hanif Abbasi for hearing on March 11.
A two-member bench of the LHC presided over by Alia Neelam took up the case for hearing on Monday.
During the course of hearing, petitioner’s Counsel took the plea that in the ephedrine case, trial was conducted against 8 suspects but only one suspect was awarded punishment.
According to Counsel, Hanif Abbasi was alleged of misusing ephedrine quota and the allegation of selling 500 kg ephedrine quota to smugglers is baseless and false.
Counsel prayed court that it should order to release Hanif Abbasi after approving his appeal.
