Started drug business to earn money

“Started drug business to earn money for politics,” ANF quotes Rana Sanaullah


Islamabad: Local news media revealed that The Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) declared that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Punjab President Rana Sanaullah Khan has admitted that he was somehow involved in the business of drugs.

A challan was submitted by the ANF which claimed Rana Sanaullah’s recorded statement about his confession.

The 4 paged challan was submitted in the court on Tuesday. Here is a complete challan statement,

“I have been associated with drug/narcotics smuggling since years. My expenditures have swelled up soon after I entered into politics. But my income was not too much. I developed links with drug smugglers after entering into politics, after becoming Law Minister in Punjab cabinet in particular. I felt that a few politicians, known to me, become billionaires and big leaders of almost all political parties made properties through illegal means. I was from the middle class and developed greed after meeting them. The business of drug smuggling and abetting criminals suited me well. So, I started facilitating and helping drug dealers and gradually started sending narcotics through my personal vehicles. It was an easy way to avoid police, etc, as being an influential person no one dared to check my vehicle. I got the drug from Afghans in Faisalabad and then other drug dealers got these drugs from me at different points for smuggling abroad to different countries.”

However, it is also surfaced that Rana Sanaullah’s wife Nabeela Sanaullah has completely denied his statements. She termed it a fake story may be plotted against her husband or perhaps he was forced to speak so.

While talking to the Geo News, she said, “It is all the way a fake story. My husband is innocent.”

The ANF challan continued to say that “On July 1, ANF through a source learnt that Rana Sanaullah would be carrying huge narcotics in his vehicle V-8 No BF-0601 Sindh while travelling to Lahore. ANF prepared a raiding team consisting of Assistant Director Imtiaz Cheema, Inspectors Nauman Ghaus, Mohammad Aslam, Ahsan Azam, Sub-Inspectors Anjum Shakil, Nida Ali Hassan, Head Constables Taufq Ahmed, Mohammad Younis, Constables Ahmed Aftab, Wasim Mukhtar, Muddasir Hussain, Mohammad Aslam, Mohammad Asif, Farooq Ashraf, Waseem Akram, Tausif Ahmed, Mohammad Adnan, driver Shahbaz Anjum, Constable drivers Mohammad Ishfaq and Imam Bux. The team reached around 1 pm at Ravi T. Plaza Lahore. Around 3:29 pm, Rana Sanaullah with his personal guards reached at the spot with two vehicles, three persons were riding in each vehicle. As the ANF team tried to recover the heroine bag and pistol from the custody of Rana Sanaullah, his guards started fighting with the ANF team. Then ANF officials had claimed to have seized 15 kilograms of heroin from Sanaullah’s vehicle while they had also detained PML-N leader’s guards for taking the law into hands.”

It is pertinent to note that a special investigation team is further probing a dozen accused who have been involved in the narcotics business apart from Rana Sanaullah.

The hearing of the case against Rana Sanaullah will resume on 30th July after the challan was submitted in the court.
