Court suspends Rana Sanaullah’s arrest warrant

Summons the ACE Punjab along with the records on October 17

The Rawalpindi bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) suspended on Thursday the arrest warrant of Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah in a case pertaining to the acquisition of plots in a housing society.

Justice Sadaqat Ali Khan heard the petition against Rana Sana’s arrest warrant, and stopped the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) from taking any action on the arrest warrant.

The court issued a notice to the anti-corruption investigation team and summoned them on October 17 along with the case records.

On October 8, Rawalpindi’s Senior Civil Judge (Criminal Division) Ghulam Akbar issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for the interior minister over his alleged failure to join the investigation in the case.

The PML-N leader is accused of taking two plots from the owner of a private society as a bribe and registering an illegal society.

Adviser to Punjab Chief Minister for Anti-Corruption retired Brigadier Musaddiq Abbasi had, in a media briefing earlier this month, said that Sanaullah had received two plots as bribe from an illegal housing society - the Bismillah Housing Scheme - in Chakwal district.

A team of the ACE team raided his Islamabad residence on October 10 but had to return empty-handed. It cited the lack of cooperation by the Islamabad police as the reason. The Islamabad police countered that ACE had refused to present the record in the case.
