ANF prosecutor in Rana Sanaullah case says was attacked by unknown persons – Pakistan

Prosecutor of the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) Kashif Javed was allegedly attacked by three unidentified people in Lahore, according to a first information report (FIR) presented Tuesday.

Javed, who is the legal counsel of the ANF in a case against the leader of PML-N, Rana Sanaullah, has claimed that an unknown person had been following him from the court to his residence for the past few days, which has raised a "continuous harassment and threat to [his] lifetime".

The prosecutor said he had informed senior officials about the matter.

Javed told police that, on Monday night, a white Corolla first blocked his passage and then deliberately crashed into his car on the main Gulberg de Lahore road "very dangerously," damaging the front of his car. He added that one of the three people in the Corolla had gone down and was moving towards Javed, but fled the scene after people began to gather at the scene.

The prosecutor urged the police to take "severe legal action" against the culprits.

Sanaullah, a member of the PML-N National Assembly, was arrested by the ANF in July in what is said to be a narcotics case involving prohibited equipment. According to ANF officials, drugs from the former Punjab law minister had been recovered while traveling from Faisalabad to Lahore.

A formal trial of the case is still to be initiated in a special court for the Control of Narcotic Substances, despite the request of ANF. On Friday, district and session judge Khalid Bashir had refused to start a trial, saying he was hearing the case as a judge on duty until the appointment of a regular incumbent. He said that a judge on duty was supposed to listen to urgent daily procedures only.
