RAWALPINDI: Judge Arshad Mehmood’s court ordered the seizure of assets belonging to former federal health secretary Khushnood Akhtar Lashari in the infamous ephedrine quota case, reported Express News on Saturday.
Khushnood Akhtar Lashari’s houses in Lahore and Islamabad will be seized after Lashari failed to provide details of his assets to the court as was ordered on July 6.
Pharmaceutical Director Col (retd) Tahirul Wadood Lahoti, chief executive of Berlex Lab International Multan Iftikhar Khan Babar, and Director Rizwan Ahmed Khan’s properties will also be seized based on the same failure to submit answers to the court.
Others to list details of assets to the court were ex-prime minister Yousaf Raza Gillani’s son Ali Musa Gillani and spouse Fouzia Gillani. They claimed that the money shown has not been made through the sale of ephedrine but was made through personal means.
The Control of Narcotics Substances (CNS) court on July 6 issued notices to 15 accused in the ephedrine case including ex-prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, his wife Fouzia Gilani and son Ali Musa Gilani to inform the court in writing about their source of income.
The judge adjourned the court till July 30.
