Rana Sanuallah has been arrested by the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF). The ANF Lahore team took him into custody from the Sukheki area of the Islamabad-Lahore motorway on Monday after discovering a large quantity of drugs in his personal car; 21 kg drugs including 15 kg heroin was recovered.
The former law minister of Punjab and PML-N leader, Rana Sanaullah was traveling with his guards from Lahore to Faisalabad to attend a party meeting, ANF officials said. The statement released by the organization included “We do not arrest anyone without a reason” and “Our mandate is to fight against narcotics.”
The Arrest Didn’t Happen Out Of Mere Coincidence. An Entire Crackdown Operation Was In The Works That Led To Rana Sanaullah.
A local source reported that a special investigation cell (SIC) which included several intelligence agencies were closely collaborating with Pakistan’s International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement (INCLE), leading the operation which pointed towards the PMLN leader, resulting in his arrest.
SIC also arrested seven frontmen that revealed information linking the former law minister to a narcotics case. They also confessed to working directly for Rana Sanaullah and the money that they made through the narcotics business was utilized to fund illegal businesses and organizations.
The ANF also have more evidence which involves call records that clearly declares Rana Sanaullah the main culprit and justifies the arrest.

Rana Sanaullah’s arrest is being deemed as ‘Political Victimization’ by his and the opposition party members. Maryam Nawaz called it ‘absurd’ and said that he was arrested for his bold and courageous stance.

He further added, “Sanaullah has been a vociferous critic of PPP in the past and is currently one of the most vocal critics of the regime. Arrests expose government’s weakness and desperation”
He has been sent on a 14-day Judicial remand.

Majority of politicians are corrupt working to fill their own pockets and facilitate their personal agendas through whichever means.
