RAWALPINDI

The Rawalpindi Bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thurs­day con­firmed the bails of Pak­istan Mus­lim League Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Hanif Ab­basi, for­mer Drug Con­troller, Sheikh An­sar and owner of the Lahore Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Com­pany, Nadeem Za­far in the Ephedrine quota case.

A two-mem­ber bench com­pris­ing Jus­tice Sagheer Ahmed Qadri and Jus­tice Ali Baqir Na­jafi con­firmed the bails of the ac­cused against surety bonds of Rs 500,000 and two guar­an­tors each.

Pros­e­cu­tor Gen­eral of the Anti Nar­cotics Force (ANF), Raja Shahid con­tended that the record sub­mit­ted by Hanif Ab­basi about us­age of the al­lot­ted quota was "bo­gus."

He said there were in­di­ca­tions that the quota was smug­gled to a neigh­buor­ing coun­try in­stead of us­ing it in man­u­fac­tur­ing medicines locally.
