LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday reserved the decision on after-arrest bail of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) Punjab president Rana Sanaullah, allegedly involved in heroin smuggling case, after the accused’s lawyer and the prosecutors of Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) completed their arguments. In arguments before the LHC Justice Chaudhry Mushtaq, the counsels for the accused petitioner questioned over the loopholes which according to them the government and the ANF left during the course of implementing on what they called “a script prepared against Sana” merely to humiliate him and suppress his voice on government’s failures.

The ANF prosecutors argued that the loopholes pointed out by Sana’s counsels have nothing to do with reality, adding there were witnesses when ANF recovered heroin from his possession. The ANF prosecutors contended the court that Sana’s counsels relied upon the same grounds on which their bails had been dismissed twice by the trial court.
