ISLAMABAD: While getting his statements recorded with the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) on Thursday in the Ephedrine case, Ali Musa Gilani, son of Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, said that three other Musas have been arrested in the case before and this time, too, someone had falsely claimed to be him.

Ali Musa answered more than 550 questions asked by the ANF officials during a session that lasted about one hour 45 minutes.

According to ANF sources, Ali Musa, during his testimony, said that he never met former director general health Dr Rasheed Jumma nor did he know him.

He said that when the quota for ephedrine was being allotted to companies, he was out of the country for education and that ANF should launch a probe to find out who had been impersonating him.

Meanwhile, an ANF court has rejected the plea for pre-arrest bails of Dr Jumma, Berlex Lab International Director Rizwan Khan and Danas Pharmaceutical Director Col (retd) Tahirul Wadood Lahoti had filed applications for pre-arrest bails in the trial court.

ANF Court Special Judge Zaffar Iqbal ordered ANF for an immediate arrest and interrogation of the three.

Ali Musa was named in the Supreme Court as the main accused in a multi-million rupee scandal involving the quota allocation of a controlled substance, ephedrine.

This honeymoon boy does not know "who" owns Berlex Lab Multan. He belongs to a very "innocent" family and has no connection whatsoever with a convicted Prime Minister named Yousaf Raza Gillani, corruption tainted former DG Hajj-Rao Shakeel, Zain Sukhera-former Consultant Ministry of IT, Adnan Khawaja-former Chairman OGRA and the list goes on :(
