LAHORE- Rana Sanaullah today took oath as Punjab law minister at the Governor House. Punjab Governor Rafique Rajwana administered the oath. Additionally, Dr Aisha Ghaus Malik also took oath as provincial finance minister.

Rana had previously lost his ministry in the wake of last year's Model Town tragedy that killed eleven Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) workers.

Last week, a joint investigation team (JIT) formed by the government of Punjab to investigate the Model Town incident had exonerated Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and former provincial law minister Rana Sanaullah from charges of ordering or abetting the police action.

According to the report, all JIT members had unanimously declared Shahbaz Sharif and Rana Sanaullah ‘innocent’ and dismissed allegations levelled against them in the FIR.
