ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah has filed a written complaint with the army chief regarding the role of the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) in the drug case against him.
- Rana Sanaullah files a written complaint with the army chief regarding drug case against him.
- Alleges that Shahzad Akbar had bag containing 15kg of heroin which he sought to have planted in his room.
- Claims ANF Major General Arif Malik got involved in exchange of benefits.
Sanaullah alleged on Geo News show "Naya Pakistan" that former prime minister Imran Khan, former advisor on accountability Shahzad Akbar, and former Director General ANF Major General Arif Malik were involved in filing a fake case of 15kg of heroin possession against him.
- Heroin smuggling case against Rana Sana false, PTI didn't build it: Fawad Chaudhry
- Rana Sana rejects claims of govt registering case against Imran Khan
- Shah Mehmood Qureshi said our narrative stood true after last session, how true is it.?? | Rana Sana
He further alleged that Akbar was in possession of the bag containing 15kg of heroin and that he asked the Islamabad police to plant it in his room at Parliament Lodges. "When Islamabad Police refused, Maj Gen Malik got involved in this conspiracy and got benefits in return," he claimed.
The interior minister said that in addition to Fawad Chaudhry, Tariq Bashir Cheema and Ijaz Shah in the cabinet also called the case a hoax.
Rana Sanaullah said that he has filed a written complaint with Chief of Army Staff General QamarJaved Bajwa regarding the role of the ANF in the case, as well as complained to him in person. While his complaint has been received, he said that the army has "its own method of investigation".
From a procedural standpoint, the ANF was the agency that received the alleged ‘tip/intel’, determined it was actionable, made the arrest and alleged drug seizure.So who made the bogus case? The army or the government, or both? Army guys ran the ANF, while PTI ministers and affiliates backed and prosecuted. We also had several claims from both the PTI and the ANF that irrefutable evidence was on hand, and that there was a very clear video of the apprehending of Rana Sanaullah that would prove his guilt.
First these useless pricks spent months attacking and maligning Justice Qazi Faez Isa, and now Imran & Co. are backtracking and apologising, distancing themselves. Seems like a similar story here. It's pathetic.
Why did some, including ex-ministers from within the government at the time, allege that the decision was also made elsewhere? Even at the cabinet level? And why after both ANF and government ministers claimed that irrefutable video evidence existed was none produced before the court, and none seems to have surfaced at all after the fact?From a procedural standpoint, the ANF was the agency that received the alleged ‘tip/intel’, determined it was actionable, made the arrest and alleged drug seizure.
The ANF was therefore responsible for providing all feedback and information necessary for the civilian government to make a decision to move forward with prosecuting the case.
The responsibility, therefore, rests with the ANF/Army.
Who provided the video and/or other evidence to the PTI government and ministers?Why did some, including ex-ministers from within the government at the time, allege that the decision was also made elsewhere? Even at the cabinet level? And why after both ANF and government ministers claimed that irrefutable video evidence existed was none produced before the court, and none seems to have surfaced at all after the fact?
As I recall in the days after the arrest, Shehryar Afridi (Minister of Narcotics Control at the time, under whose theoretical control comes the ANF) stood in parliament, while citing the Quran and Sunnah (as some politician types are wont to do it seems), and then proceeded on a 10 min rant on Rana Sanaullah's guilt. He also said as much in a separate presser while again citing video evidence. And let's not forget, both the government and the army were on the "same page" in this era.
