|Ephedrine case: ANF seeks asset details of Musa, Shahabuddin|
25 August 2012
RAHIM YAR KHAN: Officials of the Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) have asked the District Coordination Officers (DCO) to submit a complete record of the assets of everyone involved in the ephedrine quota case.
The ANF officials asked the DCO in Multan to submit complete details of the assets of Ali Musa Gilani. The DCO in Rahim Yar Khan was likewise instructed to send complete details regarding the assets of Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) President for Southern Punjab Makhdoom Shahabuddin, Secretary for Planning and Development Mian Abdul Sattar and other high-profile people of the district including PPP ticket holder Ahmad Khan Lund.
Commenting on the matter, the brother of an accused, Mian Ghos Muhammad, told the media that ANF had asked for these details so they could conduct a thorough investigation into the matter. He said that during the investigation the accused are barred from either transferring or selling their assets.
He added that Makhdoom Shahabuddin and Mian Abdul Sattar have made Rs6 million out of the whole scam and should seek apology from the public and immediately resign from their posts.
He said that he was surprised as to how people involved in such a huge scandal can still be part of PPP.
Deputy Revenue Administrative Officer of Rahim Yar Khan Shabbir Khan Mirani verified that the ANF had asked for the asset records of the three individuals.
