ISLAMABAD: A judicial magistrate on Saturday issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah over his non-appearance in an anti-corruption inquiry.
Special Judicial Magistrate Ghulam Akbar issued an arrest warrant for the interior minister in case number 19/20, said a spokesperson of the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) Punjab.
He maintained that the arrest warrant was issued over Sanaullah’s continuous non-appearance before the team probing the corruption case.
The development was also confirmed by the Anti-Corruption Establishment of Punjab.
“The warrants have been issued because Sanaullah failed to appear in the anti-corruption inquiry despite being summoned several times,” a spokesperson of the department said.
He added that orders have been issued to arrest the minister and present him for the probe.
Meanwhile, PTI, on its official Twitter account, said that a political leadership has departed to arrest Sanaullah and will soon reach the Kohsar police station.
“According to the rules, the process of arresting Rana Sanaullah will begin by informing the local police,” it added.
