PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi received notice from ANF , accounts freezed


The Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) issued a notice to PML-N leader  Hanif Abbasi in connection with further inquiry into the Ephedrine case against him. Through the notice, Hanif Abbasi and members of his family have been asked to provide details of all of their assets and bank accounts.

On the other hand, Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi on Thursday challenged the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) notice pertaining to a fresh probe into the Ephedrine case in Lahore High Court (LHC), Rawalpindi Bench.

The hearing of Ephedrine case against Hanif Abbasi is  going on in a local court.  It has been said in the notice by ANF that Hanif Abbasi should file details of assets, bank accounts in respect of him and his wife, two daughters, son and brother. All these persons should not transfer money to someone else without permission.

ANF has also sought information from Hanif Abbasi about his and family’s bank transactions, loans, investment, payments to insurance companies and premium. It has been further said in the notice that information about bank transactions over Rs100,000, cheques, bank drafts, transfer letter, deposit slip and bank cheque book serial number also be provided. Details about foreign remittances have also been demanded from Hanif Abbasi and his family.

ANF sought asset details of Hanif Abbasi, Mehnaz Abbasi, his wife, Areeba Abbasi and Zoha Khalil Abbasi, his daughters, Hamas Ullah Abbasi, his son, and Muhammad Basit Abbasi, his brother.

ANF has issued this letter under section 6 (4) of Control of Narcotics Substance Act 1997. Hanif Abbasi in his petition before the LHC has contended that the investigation in Ephedrine quota case has concluded and only one witness left to examine. Reinvestigation in this case seemed to be a move to agonise him. He requested the court to set aside ANF letter.
