ISLAMABAD - The name of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah on Wednesday has been included in the Exit Control List (ECL). According to details, Federal Cabinet has approved the suggestion of putting Rana Sanaullah’s name on ECL through circulation summary.

Earlier, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore had again summoned Rana Sanaullah on February 3 in assets beyond income case. On July 1, 2019, Rana Sanaullah was arrested by the Anti-Narcotic Force (ANF) team on the Islamabad-Lahore motorway near the Sukheki area.

The ANF officials had claimed to have seized 15 kilograms of heroin from Sanaullah’s vehicle while they had also detained PML-N leader’s guard for taking the law into hands. Later, he was released from Lahore’s Camp Jail after the Lahore High Court (LHC) granted him bail in narcotics case. He came out of the jail after five months and 25 days. 

Meanwhile, Director General Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) Major General Arif Malik has said that Rana Sana Ullah matter is in court and he should provide evidence in the Court. According to media reports he said  both parties have taken oath and courts should be closed if things are to be settled through oath.

According to detail National Assembly Standing Committee Narcotics control meeting was held on Wednesday.

After the meeting Major Gen  Arif said while talking to media that no arrested suspect confesses to his crime. Any murderer who murders  any one publicly says too  he is innocent , he added.

DG ANF said that Minister Shehryar Afridi and Rana Sana Ullah had both taken oath now a lucky draw should be held to figure out who is the culprit. He said while replying to a question that it will be better if matters are run in court and when  courts are running  then oath will not work. If  matters have to be run through oath then lock up the courts as there is no use of the courts then.
