RAWALPINDI - Civil Judge Shafqat Ullah Saturday extended the physical remand of two chief executive officers (CEOs) of pharmaceutical companies in chemical quota scam for three days. Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) staff produced Danas Pharmaceutical Islamabad’s CE Ansar Farooq and Berlex Lab International Multan’s CE Iftikhar Khan Babar before the court and pleaded for extending physical remand for 11 days. However, Civil Judge Shafqat Ullah handed over the two CEs in physical custody of ANF for three days. The court also ordered ANF to reproduce the accused on May 1, 2012 before the court for further proceeding.

It is pertinent to mention here that ANF officials handcuffed two CEs on Tuesday last when a Divisional Bench of Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected their pre-arrest bails in chemical quota case.
