Rawalpindi: Musa’s plea for cancelling arrest warrants rejected
RAWALPINDI: The additional district and sessions judge (ADSJ), Rawalpindi, on Monday rejected MNA Ali Musa Gilani’s application requesting the cancellation of his arrest warrants issued in the ephedrine case. The Additional District and Sessions Judge (ADSJ), Muhammad Kaleem Khan, rejected Gilani’s application and kept the arrest warrants against him intact. He also ordered the ANF to continue with the probe and also ordered to arrest the suspects involved in the case.
Gilani’s counsel Abdul Aziz, in the application, had maintained that his client became a part of the investigation thrice, and no evidence had emerged against him. Terming it an act of political revenge, the lawyer requested that the arrest warrants be taken back.
The ANF prosecutors said that they had found “solid evidence” against Gilani, but when he was requested to be a part of the investigation for the fourth time, he refused to do so. They added his refusal led to the issue of his arrest warrants and teams have also been formed to carry out the arrest. The case regarding the illegal sale of ephedrine was registered on October 10 last year.
