LAHORE: An anti-narcotics court in Lahore exempted Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah from appearing before it in a drug recovery case on Saturday.
The counsel of PML-N leader submitted a plea for exemption from the court appearance owing to the National Assembly (NA) session.
According to the plea, the PML-N stalwart can’t attend the court hearing in person because of the ongoing lower house session.
Sanaullah was arrested last year in July by Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) from the Islamabad-Lahore motorway near the Sukheki area. The ANF claimed that 15 kilograms of drugs were recovered from the PML-N leader’s car. He was released on bail on Dec 26.
His name has been put on the Exit Control List (ECL) in drug recovery case.
The Lahore High Court had granted bail to Rana Sanaullah in the case in December last year.
The court had ordered Sanaullah to submit two surety bonds of Rs1 million each for bail.
