On 4th December, Sanaullah’s bail plea in a drug smuggling case was rejected by the Lahore High Court (LHC).
On 1st July, Rana Sanaullah was arrested by the ANF in a narcotics case and the next day a judicial magistrate sent him to jail on judicial remand.
ANF claimed that it had seized a large number of drugs in possession of Sanaullah and lodged a case under section 9 (C) of Control of Narcotic Substances Act 1997.
Both sections carry the death penalty, life imprisonment or a jail-term that may extend to 14 years along with a fine up to Rs.1 million.
