GUJRANWALA: On Friday, a Gujranwala anti-terrorism court issued an arrest warrant for Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah.
On August 5, 2022, a case was filed against the senior PML-N leader at the Industrial police station on the complaint of PML-Q leader Shahkaz Aslam for issuing life threats to the Punjab chief secretary and his family members.
The complainant saw the federal minister hurling threats on television, according to the FIR.
The Gujranwala ATC dismissed the police report today (Friday) and ordered Sanaullah to appear on March 7.
The court also served a show-cause notice on the officer in question, as well as the DSP and SP investigations, and ordered them to appear before it.
The case was filed during Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government under Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act (punishment for acts of terrorism), Section 353 of the Pakistan Penal Code (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), Section 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions), Section 189 (threat of injury to public servant), and Section 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation).
According to the report, the interior minister made these remarks on a television show.
The purpose of Sanaullah’s statements was to terrorize the judiciary, the chief secretary, the commissioner, and the people of the country, according to the FIR. “His goal was to prevent the officials from working and from carrying out their legal responsibilities.”
According to the complainant, the minister’s speeches instilled fear in the judiciary, bureaucracy, police, administration, and the nation. He demanded that the PML-N leader be investigated.
