LAHORE: Former law minister Punjab Rana Sanaullah appeared before the special Control of Narcotic Substances (CNS) Court on Monday, where his family requested that he should be allowed medicines from his home due to his cardiac issue.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader was arrested earlier on alleged charges of carrying drugs in his vehicle.
The court resumed hearing of the case today, and after hearing arguments and passing remarks, adjourned the hearing until August 9.
During the hearing, the PML-N leader’s lawyer stated that his client is a cardiac patient and needs medication from his home.
The court asked the lawyer to submit a written response and the statement of Anti-Narcotics Force and jail officials will be taken on record as well.
During the hearing, the former law minister Punjab said that Shehryar Afridi had alleged he has his video, adding that it wasn’t a part of the challan. Sanaullah said that no statement was recorded against him.
Earlier, PML-N leader Shehbaz Sharif came to the court to meet Rana Sanaullah but police didn’t allow his vehicle inside.
PML-N workers also brawled with police outside the courtroom.
