ISLAMABAD: Suspecting foul play, the Chief Justice of Pakistan denied Anti-Narcotics Force’s (ANF) request to withdraw a case on import of banned chemical that allegedly involves personal assistant to the premier’s son Ali Musa Gilani.
The ANF had earlier filed a case against individuals involved in illegal importing of a banned chemical, allegedly used in preparation of cocaine. The premier’s son had also been summoned in the case earlier but he has not appeared before the investigation team yet.
At the hearing on Thursday, however, ANF’s Commander Brigadier Faheem said he wanted to withdraw the case.
The chief justice inquired why such an important case was being withdrawn.
Faheem replied that he was instructed by Secretary Narcotics Zafar Abbas to not proceed in any case involving [personal assistant to Ali Musa] Tauqeer Ali Khan, and a ‘political figure’ from Multan.
