RAWALPINDI - Syed Ali Musa Gilani, son of Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani, faced second time on Monday the interrogators of Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) probing the Ephidrine quota scam.

According to reports, Musa, through his lawyer, submitted his written statement before the investigators at the ANF headquarters.

Musa denied the allegations of having links with Tauqeer Ahmed, holding a meeting with former Federal Secretary Health, having telephonic connections with former Director General Health Dr Rasheed Juma to exert pressure on the officials to convert the Ephedrine quota for domestic use, sources revealed.

Meanwhile, an area magistrate Shafqat Ullah Khan gave 4-day physical remand of Drug Controller Sheikh Ansar Ahmed to ANF.

Ansar is accused of converting the quota of some 6000-kg Ephedrine for domestic use in violation of the relevant rules and regulations.

It is pertinent to mention here that two private companies had failed to satisfy ANF about where and how the controlled chemical had been used in the country.

ANF had named Ali Musa as one of the accused in its inquiry report. Eight more names to the list of accused included prime minister’s Principal Secretary Khushnood Akhtar Lashari.
