ACE team fails to arrest Rana Sanaullah

Islamabad (Web Desk): A team of Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) Punjab on Monday failed to arrest Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and returned empty-handed from Secretariat Police Station of the federal capital.

Earlier, a Rawalpindi court issued fresh arrest warrant to arrest the minister in an inquiry related to purchase of plots in a housing society at a “throwaway price”.

The judge ordered the provincial anti-graft watchdog to present Rana Sanaullah before the court.

Speaking to the media, ACE Punjab Director Syed Anwar Ali Shah alleged that the police officers misbehaved with them and pushed them out of the police station.

He said that the ACE team will now inform the court about it and plan its next strategy according to it.

Shah claimed that the police station staff did not record their arrival or departure nor did they comply with the court's orders

On Saturday, Special Judicial Magistrate Ghulam Akbar issued the arrest warrant for Interior Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Rana Sanaullah for failing to appear before the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) in a inquiry.

As per the court order, the PML-N leader was nominated in an first information report (FIR) and his arrest “is necessary in the case, so non-bailable arrest warrants of the accused may be issued”.
