Former Pakistani PM’s son arrestedSeptember 14th, 2012 - 12:14 pm ICT by IANS
Islamabad, Sep 14 (IANS) Former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani’s son Ali Musa Gilani was arrested Friday from the gate of the Supreme Court while he was on his way to appear for a hearing in a case related to quotas for the drug ephedrine, a media report said.
Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) personnel took Musa Gilani into custody when he arrived at the apex court’s gate to appear for the hearing in the ephedrine quota case, reported Dawn.
Musa Gilani offered resistance when ANF personnel tried to take him into custody.
The Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) has named eight accused in a petition, including Musa Gilani.
On April 9, the government removed two ANF officials who were investigating the scam of illegal sale of ephedrine.
The scam came to light when the ANF informed a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court that the ephedrine quota worth Rs.7 billion was given to two Multan-based companies under pressure of an influential person.
