Sanaullah was arrested with cache of drugs: Shehryar

Rana Sanaullah

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Narcotics Control Shehryar Khan Afridi has said no one is above the law and the operations of ANF are conducted without any discrimination.
He said the government of PTI firmly believes in upholding of justice and equality. He said on the basis of credible intelligence received, the movement of MNA Rana Sanaullah was monitored for three weeks and he was apprehended with cache of drugs.
He said as Rana Sanaullah was caught red handed, there is no need of additional remand.
The State Minister said no compromise will be made with those who are involved in drug trafficking.
Shehryar Khan Afridi said 2900 personnel of Anti-Narcotics Force are playing a key role in eradicating the menace of drug from society.
He said the force is understaffed and lacks necessary resources and modern technology. Despite this, he said, drugs worth billions of dollars are confiscated each year by the ANF and the conviction rate of the agency is 97%.
Raja Pervez Ashraf said the media is fourth pillar of democracy and it should function freely in the country.
Referring to Reko Diq and similar cases of international arbitration, he said the commission set up by the Prime Minister should probe the roles of all those involved in this affair.
He said the function, scope and mandate of the commission should be discussed in the parliament too. – NNI
