LAHORE: An Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) court on Saturday extended judicial remand of Rana Sanaullah till September 14 in a heroin smuggling case.
According to reports, due to repatriation of judge Masood Arshad, no proceedings of the case were made in the hearing today. Furthermore, no progress has been reported on the ANF’s request to freeze the assets of Sanaullah. On August 24, the PML-N leader’s remand was extended for 14 days.
